Book Club and Pre-discussion Cook Out

This month we are reading Little Bee by Chris Cleave. A haunting novel about the tenuous friendship that blooms between two disparate strangers--one an illegal Nigerian refugee, the other a recent widow from suburban London.  I just finished it... I love it (Dave)

We originally were going to have a Cook Out at Pioneer Park prior to the start, however the city wanted $60 and we had to be out by 7:30.  Erggggghhhh... Blast you City of Bend!!!!

Tracey has offered his place... Thanks!!!!

    Just as a clarification for the poor planning
    1. The Book Club will start at 6:30 as usual, the 5:30 timing was to allow for grilling, BUT that portion was cancelled due to the city.
    2. It will be at Tracey house, thanks to his generosity.
    3. I guess we should not stray from the successful format which has made this book group as enjoyable as it always has been.

    Look forward to meeting the new comers. And of course all the regulars as well.

    This is our first event; we are new to Bend and looking forward to meeting new friends. I am going to assume we byob, something for the grill, and a community dish to share? Please enlighten us if otherwise! We have started the book - interesting so far.

      Brian... Welcome... The cookout was a previous plan that we were going to do if it was at the park. BUT, now it is just the usual book club. People bring what they want to drink. Don't be confused by the changes to this month's meeting. It works better than this usually. We loo forward to meeting you.
