We snuck in our April book club right at the very end of the month on, what hopefully was, the last freezing cold night of the season. We tumbled into Kari’s house wearing parkas (I had to drag mine out from the back of the closet where I had put after last weeks warm spell in hopes of not seeing it again for a very long time!) and wet from the drizzle. It was a small fun group and we had lots to discuss about the book we read; Glitter and Glue: A Memoir by Kelly Corrigan.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Glitter and Glue: A Memoir is Kelly Corrigan’s latest book in which she shares her relationship with her mother and how motherhood changed how she perceived and valued her mother. It is thoughtful, heartwarming and makes you think about yourself as a mother and daughter. For a book club of ladies who grew up in the same generation as Kelly, her stories and recollections sounded similar to many. We had a great time discussing her book and it lead to our own recollections of growing up and becoming mothers. On a whole we all really enjoyed the book.
