Woman at Point Zero - Nawal El Saadawi

Sorry everyone, had to reschedule this from May 19 to July 28th, and then from that to August 4th. It was a very bad week for Lisa and really a number of unforeseen things happened that caused us to change it a second time. Hopefully third time is a charm.

    I had cancelled plans, re-read the book (?) only to find out the day before that the meeting was re-scheduled. I can not make it next week and am re-thinking of attending any future meetings.

      Jim, I am sorry that we threw your plans off. If you don't want to attend any future meetings, that is your prerogative. But I submit that we haven't had 140 successful meetings if this kind of thing is anything but a rare occurrence. That it happened twice for the same book is a strange and unfortunate coincidence; I hope you understand that such strange coincidences do happens sometimes in life.

    If the meetup is going to be rescheduled for a 2nd time, it would be nice to get a notification about it before a member posts something on the board. Either that, or have another member fill in for the organizer if they can't make it for the 2nd time. Having people show up for a meetup because they had less than 24 hrs notice is not cool.

      There was an email sent to group members, but my Meetup is connected to an email I rarely check. That's why I didn't know about the change until the message board discussion. I do like the idea of having another assistant organizer lead the Meetup if the host can't make it. We have a bunch of assistant organizers!

      Julie, with one exception we have always had the person (assistant organizer) who picked the book be present at the book discussion. And since this is Lisa's pick it is only natural that she be present at the meeting. We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    Apologies are in order for those who were inconvenienced by this last minute change. It would have been prudent to change this earlier, but with Lisa's grandmother passing away last Sunday night, neither Lisa or I got around to doing that until Saturday morning. I will say though that it is always a good idea to double-check the meetup page the day of or day before -- one can never tell when some kind of emergency does transpire. If you have outdated emails linked to the meetup then I recommend changing it to something more current so you get the email notifications. Unfortunately, email is the primary mode of communication on meetup (apart from changes to the actual meetup page) so we'll have to make do with that. Once again, sorry if we threw your plans off and for the inconvenience; but I hope that people can be a little understanding of life events.

    I thought this was supposed to be for July 28th? Did it get rescheduled again?

      Oh shoot. I don't think I can make it if it's August 4. Thanks for posting, this, Julie.

      When did it change to August 4th?

      July 28, 2013

  • Christine H.

    Oh no! I was available tomorrow. I think I have a conflict on Aug 4. :( Well, the book was good. Hopefully will see you all if there is a quick read in Fall or Winter.
