Secret Fans for our PQ's

Sorry to be  late in posting, just lots going on everyone else!

Our September meeting was to discuss the book Snow Flower and The Secret Fan by Lisa See .  A wonderful book about an old Chinese custom involving selection of best friends call "The Sames" and how they used fans to write to each other.  They wrote about every day life which included the custom of foot binding.  Which was very upsetting to our present day thinking.To emphasize the importance of communication between friends, we each made our own secret fans with words of wisdom written upon them to our royal sisters.

We are also honored to have Louisiana author Christa Allan   visit and discuss her book The Edge of Grace, although not a memoir as such, there were lots of personal events portrayed in the book and she graciously shared her story behind the story she had written.

Wonderful meeting!  Love our Royal Sisters!
