Loving Frank

  • June 18, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Please note the change!  *****We will meet June 18th at 7:00 at IHOP to discuss Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. Also, to have some more fun, we will play the truth and untruth game. Please write on a note card or half sheet of paper, something that is true about you and something that is untrue. We will have one person read each one. We will guess who wrote it and which statement is the truth and which is not. Sounds like fun!!!! If you would like to have dinner then we can meet at 6:30 or so, before the meeting. See you then and happy reading!

IHOP is at 4122 Highway 20 in Buford, or it is also called Buford Drive.  I have linked a map to it.

    All, it's been quite awhile since I've been to a Buford Book Club meeting but I can't think of a more significant book to read upon my return. Since not everyone is through reading it, I will only say that when I reached the end of the book, I closed it and just sat in my chair. My daughter walked in and asked what was wrong and I told her I had just finished reading this amazing book and needed a moment to simply savor it. I won't say more but I know there will be a lot to discuss on Tuesday. Thank you to whoever suggested this book.

    I got my book late and may not finish by our meeting time. Would I be doing myself or you all a disservice by coming anyway?

      Come on. You'll always have something to contribute, the parts you've read already, your thoughts, and feelings. Yes, come on, it'll be fun!

      You may find it's a plot spoiler for you to attend, as we cannot discuss this book without talking about the ending!

      Have fun Victoria! We will miss you! I enjoy seeing photos of your cute little baby on fb. He is growing so fast! He's adorable!

    That sounds worth a try out. I'll come early since I plan to eat there. (It's really distracting when people try to order during the meeting.)

    2 · June 14, 2013

    • Lori P.

      Yes, I'll be there early as well to eat. YUM! Awesome!

    I just got our reservations made for IHOP, Tuesday night. I told them 6:30 p.m. I hope lots of us will arrive early and have dinner together. Or at least come early and order a beverage, we'll have some time to chat before our meeting. I'm so looking forward to it! The book, Loving Frank, has really hit me emotionally. I knew the story of Frank and Mamah before I read this book, but to experience it from her own viewpoint is very heart wrenching to me. I'm happily anticipating hearing your opinions on it!

      Thank you Susan!

    Ladies, would you like to have our meeting at the IHOP on Buford Drive at Lee St., in front of Home Depot? My granddaughter works there and told me they can seat us in their private room. I called her Manager to confirm that, and he said Yes, he could give us the whole room. Of course at least the majority of us would be obligated to order something but it sounds like many of us were going to eat dinner, anyway. I would love to meet there and my Granddaughter could be our Server! Let me know, yes or no, so I can contact him to reserve our room. Thank you!

    Lori, want me to check with Sugar Hill Community Center as a possible back up?

    1 · June 13, 2013

    • Lori P.

      Yes, that's good. Have we checked Atlanta Bread ever? I can't remember. I can check at Atlanta Bread tomorrow, I'll be near there. I'll see what they say, you see what Sugar Hill Community Center says, if they're free that evening. Thank you Susan! :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
