Second Edition Book Club  Tuesday, May 21 at 6:30 p.m.   This month's selection,  Where the Crawdads Sing  by Delia Owens, is a first novel by an experienced writer and observer of nature and the wildlife around her. The lyrical prose is a pleasure that can be savored and the story allows such vision that sometimes seems just a framework for the author's intrigue with the lowcountry swamps and marshes.  Our May 21st meeting will be 6:30 p.m. as usual, at Peter Rupert's new place, 1605 Cristalino Circle, Carolina Bay, 29414.
