There’s so much for book clubs to talk about with Lilac Girls, Lost Roses, and Sunflower Sisters. The debilitating power of guilt. Mothers and daughters. Is it better to forgive or just forget? What does it mean to really love someone? How does it all connect to our current political landscape?
Book clubs have done so many creative things at their meetings. Cooked foods featured in the books (one recreated Euphemia’s picnic basket from the auction scene in Sunflower Sisters), used the Lilac Girls maps found here on this website as centerpieces, and featured lilacs, roses and sunflowers in so many creative ways, (including scrumptious book-inspired cocktails.)
If you have any pictures from your book group gathering discussing either of my books, please send them along. I just love seeing them and will add them to my website Book Club Gallery below.
