Created for women to celebrate
the journey, romance the soul, fuel the visual senses, and connect with those who have
journeyed before us.
VALLEY GIRLS BOOK CLUB
ST. PAUL, MN
It was a cold Minnesota January evening, but our hearts were warmed by laughter, conversations, and delicious food prepared by Lori. The dog even wanted to snuggle up and be included in the photo.
These women shared more than books. They shared a history of growing up in the valley—the St. Croix River Valley, that is. Member, Becky, started the book club in the fall of 2004. After years of talking about, it finally happened.
Enjoy these comments from some of the women.
"The Fortunate Four" was a pleasure to read.
Thank you for bringing these women's lived into our hearts. We need to
cherish the journeys of others who have gone before us to appreciate theirs
and to think about ours.
Joy, thank you so much for your time. You are such an interesting person. I very much enjoyed your book. Whenever I feel my life spiraling out of control, I can snap myself back by simply reading your stories. Deb R.
Your book has made me think about my own life, as well as my mother's. It has opened up much conversation among our members and also with my mom. Thank you! Jean L.
