As our readers know, the Owl Creek Gazette promotes an “independent, self-reliant, out-of-the-box, off-the-grid, voluntaryist, and kitchy” approach to living and learning. Reflecting this attitude, we are excited to announce a new opportunity for readers and friends to gather, learn and encourage each other on this journey. Starting on March 6th, 2013, we will begin hosting the Owl Creek Gazette Books & More Club. The club will meet the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the Owl Creek Gazette office located at 208 South Second Street in Greenville, IL.
This Books & More Club promises to be an eclectic and encompassing type of club, as we will be discussing and sharing a wide range of genres in fiction and nonfiction literature, film, television, internet, and even music.
The Owl Creek Gazette is also pleased to announce that our Sunshine and Bugs columnist, Roxanne Bare, will be facilitating the meetings and discussions. Roxanne is looking forward to hearing from our readers with questions or suggestions as input is always welcome. She can be reached directly on Facebook or by way of her personal email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
The inaugural book, “Little House in the Big Woods” by Laura Ingalls Wilder, is actually the first book in a series. The club will read the complete “Little House” series, considered a 20th century American classic written for children, but there is much to be gained by reading this series as an adult and discovering yet again the lessons of self-reliance and independent living.
After we've completed this series, we have plans to read the writings of Rose Wilder Lane. Noteworthy here is that Rose Wilder Lane is Laura Ingalls Wilder's daughter.
By the way, folks not able to join the live meetings, (due to distance or prior commitments) are invited to participate in our Owl Creek Gazette Books and More Discussion Group on facebook.
