For women who love to read — or maybe write, our group consists of a very short topic-of-the-day discussion, a speaker presentation on a reading-related subject and Dutch treat lunch following the meeting at a nearby restaurant. Lunch is optional. This is not a traditional book group so members do not have to prepare for the meetings. Open for new members.

Bookmarkers meets 1st Tuesday of Oct, Dec, Feb, & April at 10:30 am at Tidepointe Ballroom.

Remaining Scheduled meetings:

2018-19 Program Schedule

February 5  Nelle and Ora Smith, mother-daughter authors of memoir, Paradise:  Memories of Hilton Head in the Early Days, combine their own memories with copious notes taken by their husband-father John Gettys Smith, Charles Fraser’s first PR director, to give us a picture of Hilton Head from when they arrived in 1963.  True pioneers, the duo witnessed and created many firsts on the Island. Lunch at One Hot Mama’s.

April 2  Natasha Boyd, international best-selling, award-winning romance writer with a “passion for the Lowcountry,” turns to historical fiction with her latest book, Indigo Girl, the story of Eliza Lucas Pinckney.  When Eliza’s father takes off from his colonial Lowcountry plantation and leaves his teenaged daughter in charge, she defies all expectations.  Lauded by Southern Living and Library Journal.  Lunch at Darren Clarke’s Tavern.
