“The Red Queen” by Margaret Drabble at Erin’s

Wonderful evening at Erin’s new house in the country to discuss The Red Queen” by Margaret Drabble. There was agreement that Drabble was not successful in melding the historical and present day narratives together but the pictures and descriptions from Erin’s experiences in Korea brought the historical story come to life. The bibimbap and dumplings were delicious. Recipes for the delicious desserts will be posted and we all learned about a great place, “The Perk”, for Korean food.

Jeanne was a trooper coming on her crutches and Bev participated through FaceTime – so good to see both Bev and Jeanne recovering from their injuries.image
