The Cool Chicks Read Book Club selects Sins of the Seventh Sister by
Huston Curtiss in keeping with Everything WV Month theme.
It is his story and the story of the people of Elkins, West Virginia, a small town whose inhabitants included his mother, Billy-Pearl Curtiss, and her many sisters—all stunning blondes. Billy-Pearl would prove to be an irresistibly romantic figure in her son’s life. She was the seventh of eleven children, all girls to her father’s consternation. By the time of her arrival, her father felt he had been patient enough and insisted on calling her Billy; he taught her everything he had intended to impart to his firstborn son. She would grow up to be one of the most beautiful women in the county, but also one of the most opinionated and liberal.
Sins of the Seventh Sister is brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, as alive with flamboyant characters and wildly uncontained emotions as any book to come out of the South.
Meetings will begin at 5:30 p.m. Members bring drinks or snacks to offset dinner time. Punctuality is not necessary. Come when you can!
Most books are made available at the library circulation desk to Book Club Members at cost.
