I know what you’re thinking – they haven’t even been blogging for a year and they’re already recycling their posts?? Fair point. But most worthwhile causes need support more than once a year, and this one’s raising money for pediatric brain cancer research through the Christopher Court Foundation. We know the founders, whose own son was taken by a brain tumor, and who make sure every penny goes directly to the research. Our book club’s previous basket (featuring My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry) amassed a lot of raffle tickets at the last fundraising event. (How many? We don’t know, and we would like that data! If it was less than 150 dollar’s worth, maybe we should have just donated the money instead!) Besides, as book club members ourselves, who get a lot of enjoyment out of that camaraderie and mental stimulation, how could we not want to share the tools of the trade with others not as blessed as we are whenever we have the chance? So here it is: our second Book Club in a Basket, this time for Tracy Chevalier’s At the Edge of the Orchard!
