Discontent #2

PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE TO 1PM TO ACCOMMODATE THE HOST. THANKS AND SEE YOU THERE!

The September book will be The Winter of Our Discontent by John Steinbeck. Steinbeck's classic looks at a young man has lost and must re-discover the drive that his forebears had. Follow the series of events that pulls him out of his rut and see how Ethan re-finds prosperity and what it means for his identity.

As usual, this is a wrap-up meeting, and so we hope you've finished the book for closing comments.

NOTE the date change, and confirmation of the location. This is a private home, please contact the host if you don't know how to get there.

    This is one of the reasons I really like this group. I would not have chosen to read this book on my own and I liked but didn't love the book, but it resulted in some great discussion and interesting viewpoints. Truly a "Book for Thinkers."

    I just now saw the post for THE LAST LECTURE. I saw a video clip of this professor. Inspiring. I will be attending for sure. Would like to get my book at Schuyler's and receive the discount. Thanks. I look forward to meeting you all. Linda.

    The discussion today was great. So many insights into the book. My opinion of the book rose quite a bit after hearing everyone's thoughts. And that is what makes the book club valuable.

    Dangit, I'm sorry all...I realized this week that my social work class schedule is moving much faster than I feel prepared for. I think I'm going to make the (boring) decision to stay in on Saturday and force myself through the chapters I need to read (and start another paper...I have one I just finished, and two more due on the same day that I must plow through before I have to start the GROUP PAPER)!

    I appreciated all the nice comments from before...and I WILL be back, once I put this class behind me. :(

    Just couldn't get into this book. I swear, every time I tried, I ended up nodding off. Don't think I made it past page 60.

    Is the next book picked yet?

    Sorry I won't make this one. My son is getting married, and I'm opting for the wedding rather than the book club this time. If he gets married again, I'll come to book club instead. Promise.

    Happy about the date change! I thought I was going to miss both the meetups on this book. Now I'd better work on getting a copy of the book...

    I would be happy to host, but have a conflict with the time. I could do a Friday or Saturday evening that particular weekend. But realize that might not be ideal for everyone.
