    The Jersey Brothers

    On Monday, January 21 the Deercreek bookclub will meet at the home of Jill Mountan to discuss The Jersey Brothers by Sally Freeman.

    Summary:

    This is the true story of three brothers, all Navy men, who end up coincidentally and extraordinarily at the epicenter of WWII’s most crucial moments. Bill is trapped by Franklin Roosevelt to run the first Map Room in Washington. Benny is the first gunnery and antiaircraft officer on the USS Enterprise, one of the only ships to escape Pearl Harbor and, by the end of 1942, the last aircraft carrier left in the Pacific to defend against the Japanese. Barton, the youngest, gets a plum commission in the Navy Supply Corps because his mother wants him out of harm’s way. But this protection plan backfires when Barton is sent to the Philippines and listed as missing-in-action after a Japanese attack.

    Now it is up to Bill and Benny to rescue him.

    Based on 10 years of research, and written by a family member.

    If you are interested in participating in the Book Club contact Mary Louise Selzer at MLSelzer@comcast.net, or 904-613-6147.

    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.
