The CHNA Book Club will be reading The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion, a new comic mystery by Fannie Flagg for April. This book follows a similar formula of southern wit, humor and charm as Flagg’s previous and very successful books such as Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, Welcome To the World Baby Girl, and Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven.
According to Amazon’s Expert Book Reviews page, Sookie Poole, one of the main characters, is ready to enjoy a quiet life of retirement with her husband when she receives a phone call that changes everything: “The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion compares the contrasting worlds of present-day Southern life and Midwestern immigrant cities during World War II. After learning that she was adopted, Sookie is filled with questions of self-doubt and becomes determined to learn the truth behind her roots. Fannie Flagg depicts adventurous and courageous women as WASPs during WWII as she tells the story of the Jurdabralinski sisters. These roles contradict Sookie’s upbringing in Alabama where society is ruled by social norms and status. The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion offers an inspirational tale with accurate historical details that are presented through an engaging plot. This novel also captures a journey of self-discovery mixed with realism and humor to delight all
Please join us on Tuesday, April 22 at 7 PM to discuss The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion. The book discussion will take place at 835 26th Avenue, North. For more information contact Maureen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
