Join us on the first Thursday of every month for the JPKS Bookclub!
DATE: Thursday, June 6, from 6-8pm
LOCATION: JP Knit & Stitch, 461 Centre St, Jamaica Plain, MA
At our next book club session, we will be discussing The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio by Terry Ryan. The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio introduces Evelyn Ryan, an enterprising woman who kept poverty at bay with wit, poetry, and perfect prose during the "contest era" of the 1950s and 1960s. Standing up to the church, her alcoholic husband, and antiquated ideas about women, Evelyn turned every financial challenge into an opportunity for innovation, all the while raising her six sons and four daughters with the belief that miracles are an everyday occurrence.
We can't wait to hear your take on the book AND help us pick our next read!
