UpBEAT (B.e E.ducated and A.ctive T.ogether) Book Club

January 13, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


This month’s book is The Only Story by Julian Barnes. This is one of many, Julian Barnes’ books, we have read together. Julian shares a love story through the character, Paul. She takes us into Paul’s complex reflection on the human heart and his relationship with Susan Mcleod. Please join us on Monday, January 13 at 10 a.m. for lively discussion. If you are looking to read ahead, pick up and begin to read The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. A novel that is set in 1947, Kate tells a story of two women, encompassing two eras, World War I and World War II.  We will discuss The Alice Network on Monday, February 10, 2020.

The UpBEAT Book Club meets the second Monday of each month at 10 a.m. at OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital WillowView Café.

UpBEAT is a program for those 55 years and older. Membership is free. To join UpBEAT and receive our monthly newsletter, or for program information, call Caitlin Bond, UpBEAT Program Coordinator, at (740) 566.4680.

During winter weather please note, UpBEAT programming is cancelled if the Athens City School District cancels for severe weather. We also cancel our programs if conditions are dangerous for older adults to leave their homes, for example if there is ice on roads or sidewalks or the temperature is below 15 degrees. When an activity is cancelled due to weather conditions, it will meet again at the next regularly scheduled time. When possible, the speaker or activity for the cancelled program will be rescheduled for the next available date. Except for the Saturday exercise class at O’Bleness, cancellations will be announced on WATH 970 AM.
