84 Charing Cross Road

In December, Deercreek Book club will meet at the Home of Pam Overbay for a Christmas Cookie Exchange. Members will bring 3 dozen Christmas cookies to share. While we are snacking on cookies, we will discuss our book selection, ’84 Charing Cross Road’ by Helene Hanff.

Summary:

This charming love story, first published in 1970, brings together twenty years of correspondence between Helen Hanff, at the time a freelance writer living in New York City, and a used-book dealer in London at 84, Charing Cross Road. Through the years, though never meeting and separated both geographically and culturally, they share a winsome, sentimental friendship based on their common love for books. Their relationship, captured so acutely in these letters, is one that has touched the hearts of thousands of readers around the world.

The book club meets the third Monday of every month at 10:00 AM. If you are interested in more information call Mary Louise Selzer at 904-613-6147, or MLSelzer@comcast.net.
