Longevity

How long has your book group been in existence?  Feel like forever sometimes?  I’ll bet you can’t beat the Zetema book club, based in Ottowa, IL.  They’ve been around since 1910!  It’s an invitation-only book club, but apparently, they’ve never turned a prospective member down.  They currently have about 20 members, with the oldest being in their mid-80s.

Color me impressed!

    That’s pretty neat! To continue through some of the most trying times in history, can only imagine the discussions they’ve had. Wonder what their favorite books were? It’s inspiring for others.
