Description:  Title: Georgia Bottoms
Author: Mark Childress
Description: Georgia Bottoms may be Six Points, Alabama's finest feature - beautiful, worldly, a splendid cook and faithful churchgoer who cares for her aged mother and sells handmade quilts to her grateful neighbors.Georgia also has a discreet side business, "entertaining" six local gentlemen at night. Judge Barnett on Sunday, Sheriff Allred on Friday, the doctor on Wednesday (Monday's are Georgia's own). Each gentleman gets a night tailored to his particular tastes, each has been trained to leave a "gift" to help Georgia get by, and each one thinks he is Georgia's only secret lover.
 
When Preacher Eugene Hendrix (Saturdays) decides he must confess their affair in front of his wife and the entire congregation, Georgia may be able to stop him in time. But one pin pulled out of her elaborately protected life may be all it takes to send the whole structure to hell in a hurry. Chin high, posture perfect, her Chanel handbag tucked firmly under her arm, Georgia sets out to save herself, her mama, and her particular notion of virtue from total ruin. ~Dust Jacket

Really want to join a book club but don’t really like to read? Come join us at Cafe Louisa as we talk and color. Read the book, or don’t! We alternate between fiction and nonfiction/biography as well as discuss other books we read during the month or in the past that are related. Additional titles on the theme will be available, so bring your library card! Just want to color and enjoy our company? You’re welcome! Bring your own supplies or use some of ours. Coloring sheets provided.
Book Swap!
Description: Instead of all reading the same book we will choose someone to pick a book for. Pair off with your chosen person and get to know their tastes and what they’ve enjoyed in the past. See if they’re looking to read outside their normal genre, or if there’s a book you’ve read you think they’ll like. Then we’ll discuss those books in January and see how we all did. This is a great time for new people to join! Books may be lent from personal collections, but it is at the lender’s risk and borrowers should be made aware beforehand.
