Bev Morris is the proprietor of Churchill's Fine Gourmet Gifts and so much more!!   I am a member of her book club and so received the note she sent out to her BBC (best book club) friends. I asked for her permission to share it with you and she agreed.   "Happy New Year to my BBC (best book club) friends!   Really looking forward to spring and book discussions.
