A group of women in a Beverly Hills book club took their copy of the Beverly Hills Courier on a vacation last month to Arrowhead in Pittsfield, Mass., – home of Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick and Billy Budd. Notably in the background is Mount Greylock, which is believed to be the inspiration for Moby Dick. The group spent a week exploring the stomping grounds and homes of New England authors they read – Melville, Wharton, Thoreau, Emerson, Twain, Alcott, Dickinson, Stowe, Hawthorne and Longfellow. The group reads only literary classics and have been meeting for over 14 years. From left: Kathy Carmel, Marian Gerlich, Eleanor Padnick, Elizabeth Evans and Simonne Yaroslow.
