November 2010

November's book is The Colony of Unrequited Dreams by Wayne Johnston. This is a novel about Newfoundland and Joey Smallwood. I have the book club set for this if anyone needs to borrow a copy. We will be meeting at Marian's.

October's book, The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, was a great pick. Great discussion and well worth reading a few times.

There will be no meeting in December.

January's meeting will be on the 10th at Rosalie's. We will have a special guest at this meeting - Joseph Kertes - author of Gratitude. We will be asking everyone to contribute toward a gift for our guest.
RSVPs are requested.
