RNK Bookclub for May
Saturday, May 16th, 11:00am
We begin with brunch followed by book discussion. We meet in one anothers' homes, rotating amongst ourselves. The book for May is STAND UP THAT MOUNTAIN by Jay Leutze. Those that
will be sent address a few days prior to the event. Please RSVP no later than 1 week prior to the event so host has time to prepare. Book description follows:
Jay Leutze gets a call from 14 year-old, Ashley Cook, and her aunt, Ollie Cox, who say a local mining company is intent on tearing down Belview Mountain, the peak above their house. Ashley and her family, who live in a spot known locally as Dog Town, are “mountain people,” with a way of life and speech unique to their home high in the Appalachians. They suspect the mining company is violating North Carolina’s mining law, and they want Jay, a nonpracticing attorney, to stop the destruction of the mountain.
