Your vacation at Pebbles just got a lot more literary, thanks to a curated book club — paired with a complimentary wine hour and an exclusive discount.
One of the things — perhaps the only thing, honestly — that’s easy to miss about vacations: having in-depth conversations with like-minded voyagers. But vacations don’t have to be all impersonal chats about the weather (although those can be nice, too) — certainly not at a Pebbles, where hobnobbing with fellow travelers easily includes literary analysis of today’s most thrilling contemporary fiction, thanks to our new book club.

- Educated: A Memoir
by Tara Westover
Summary: A #1 New York Times Bestseller, Educated is an unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University.
