Book Club

Emily Torbert

One of the founding members of the book club, Emily decided along with Pixie Hupper to start the club, because they were afraid of dying “mentally on the vine” as housewives.  Described by others as physically active, spirited and courageous, Emily went back to school in the sixties to get her masters degree in social work so she could leave her first husband and support herself.  After numerous male friends, she found her third husband, whom she describes as, “the best snuggling yet.”
