Book: Just Kids by Patti Smith
Food Theme: Favorite Musician's Favorite Food
Because I've been a bad blogger I can't even remember what we discussed at this book club. I think we ate many tasty things as usual . . .
Girls, feel free to comment and add who your musician was and what you brought:
Hayley: Andrew Bird / Olives (supplemented with crackers and cheese)
Kim: Brownies and Chocolate covered candies
I believe we all finished the book (?) and thought it was an interesting glimpse into the lives of musicians and artists in the 60's and 70's, especially the lives of Patty and Robert.
I had a hard time swallowing that anyone's life could be so amazing and so casually filled with such famous people. I don't doubt the truth of it, not in the least, it's just simply hard to imagine how many creative people there were coming together at that time in New York. It seems like it was such a rich time to have been alive and in that scene.
