Joan Snavely, 83, had just read “Killing Kennedy” by Bill O’Reilly.
“I think you guys would like it,” she said. “Because it is our age group, we were all glued to the TV when it happened.”
She said she has been a part of the group for a long time, but can’t remember exactly when she joined.
“It is good to hear, ‘This is a good one and you should read this,’” she said. The friendships are her favorite part about the group.
“If I am sick, they send me flowers,” she said. “It is good to be remembered.”
Betty Dunbar has been a part of the group for about 10 years.
“It is great fun,” she said. “It is the friendships and it is interesting to see what people get out of their books.”
What is the future of the group?
“We hope to keep going,” Seavey said. “We get new people all the time and we don’t even have to try. People like coming.”
