When the local book club called The Angle of Repose read "Rivers of Kentucky," the members decided to invite the authors, David and Lalie Dick to their meeting. "We thought it would be neat to have ... the authors join us for dinner and discuss the book," said Linda Barnard.
The group knew the couple lived near Paris, Ky., but it took Greg Barnard two weeks of searching to find the e-mail address. The invitation went out and the club was quite excited to have the invitation accepted, especially since this is the 10th year the readers have been together.
The Barnards hosted the group at their home Monday. Other members are Jan and Larry Scott, Cheryl and Gary Gibson and Evelyn Guerrant.
"To say the least, it was a wonderful evening," Mrs. Barnard said.
After dining on a Kentucky dinner that included striped bass from Lake Cumberland, dove, fresh green beans, peach cobbler and Kentucky wine from Midway, the readers topped off the evening by hearing Dick read passages from the book.
