The Genealogy Gems Book Club got two thumbs-up at RootsTech 2016! Several people I talked to have enjoyed reading our featured books and then listening to the author interviews at the end of each quarter. Others are simply tuning in for the author conversations or adding the books to their “to read” lists. That’s what we love about the Genealogy Gems Book Club: there’s something for everyone.
At the Genealogy Gems Book Club Open House last Thursday at RootsTech, we offered a chance at a door prize for all those who suggested a book title for the Book Club. Alexis Maurer from Salt Lake City, UT won the drawing! She’s received a year’s Genealogy Gems Premium website membership, giving her full access to the Book Club interviews on the Premium podcast every quarter.
There’s still plenty of time to enjoy this quarter’s featured title, Orchard House: How a Neglected Garden Taught One Family to Grow, a memoir by Tara Austin Weaver. Tara is one of the world’s leading food bloggers, as author of Tea & Cookies. Her recipe for Orchard House is one part food, one part gardening and two parts family drama, liberally seasoned with humor and introspection. She’ll appear on the Genealogy Gems Premium Podcast in March. (Interview excerpts are played on the free Genealogy Gems podcast, too.)
