The Now For Something Completely Different Corner: Earlier in the year our group discussed the possibility of attending the Open House New York Weekend. Said to be "America's largest architect and design event" the weekend includes tours of building interiors throughout New York City that one would not ordinarily get to see. The 8th Annual openhousenewyork Weekend will be held October 9 & 10, 2010. The schedule is not out yet, but, since we're a Brooklyn group, we discussed taking one or more of the Brooklyn tours. We can discuss whether there's any interest in this at our September meeting. See you then!
We are a group of friendly, diverse, neighborhood women who like good books and lively conversation. We favor books that are well-written and allow us to learn a bit about some period in history and/or another culture. We are price conscious, and have never put a hardcover book on our list. Our membership is limited to 20 people, but spots do open regularly. Our meetings are limited to 10, on a first-RSVP-first-come basis. Please join us if you love great writing, are open to reading new things and feel that discussion enhances your reading experience.
