Dirty Girl Adventures Book Club

The Dirty Girl Adventures Book Club at Compass Point home of Dirty Girl Adventures at 800 North Kansas Avenue in Topeka is open to everyone! Take a break and talk about some great books in a casual, no-pressure environment.

Meetings start at 7 pm after our weekly yoga class (5:45-6:45). Karen Stockwell-Withers, a Dirty Girl member, will be leading the book club on March 11th when we discuss Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

Brief Summary:  For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

The bar will be open for beverages, feel free to bring your dinner or a snack to share. This is a free event! We hope to see you there for a time to connect with other women by discussing a great book.
