An August Woman's Literary Club

The building where they used to meet

I recently gave a lecture about my Lake Michigan hike in Holland, Michigan.

The group there, the Woman's Literary Club of Holland, has been in existence for over a century and they currently have over 150 members who meet twice-monthly to discuss all things literary.  

They now meet in this Holland church 

This club has rich history. One woman told me that her grandmother was one of the founding members of the club.

Mimi is the president of the group 

Author visits are always followed by 

coffee, dessert, and chatting.

It was a pleasure to meet these 
literary-minded women! 


  1. Excellent program! Loreen's story is one we will not forget. She presented with clarity and humor. Her courageous and adventuresome spirit is an inspiration to us all. She followed her dream and her heart.

  2. Thank you for the comment! I so enjoyed speaking to this group!
