McKee Botanical Book Club

McKee’s Botanical Book Club has been cancelled until November 2021. Susan and I regret that we will be unable to do the book club this year. It is one of our most favorite things about our winters in Vero Beach. We will miss seeing our book club friends but feel it is more important for all of us to stay healthy. My guess is that like Susan and I our members have been reading more than usual in this pandemic. If some of you are looking around for a new read, we thought that it might be a good idea to release our proposed book list for this year, even if we won’t be able to discuss them. The Heirloom Garden by Viola Shipman, The Feather Thief by Kirk Wallace, The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan and just for fun, Carolyn suggests Miss Benson's Beetle by Rachel Joyce. We look forward to seeing everyone in November 2021! Stay safe and healthy! Carolyn and Susan
