Welcome to Fairmount's Women's Literary Club

The Fairmount Women’s Literary Club traces its roots back to 1896. Then known as the Book and Thimble Club, 18 Fairmount women gathered bi-monthly to discuss and present papers on topics from the “Effects of Lincoln’s Assassination upon the People” to the “Origin and Civilization of the Incas.”

In 1935 the Literary Club held its first tea in honor of the soon-to-be graduating high school senior women. The students, with their mothers and grandmothers, enjoy dainty treats and sandwiches as well as muscial selections and reading by the Club Members.

The Club held its 59th Senior Tea on April 18, 2004, and presented each student with a personalized booklet on her life and a copy of The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White. The Club sponsors a student each summer to attend the N.D Leadership Seminar.

In addition, the Club presents a baby blanket to the first baby born in Fairmount each year. In February 2004, the Club held its first annual “One Town/One Book project. The Club, through a grant from Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative, provided copies of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee to interested residents. On Feb. 18, 2004, Mary Parnell, Humanities Scholar since 1994, The N.D. Council for Humanities, led a community book discussion at the high school library.

The Club meets each month from September through May, excluding January. If you are interested in learning more about the Club, please contact denise@friendlyarts.net.
