After a great, spirited discussion of articles this month, we've got four nonfiction stories to read and discuss.  Hope you all can make it... especially some of you newcomers (yes, you!)

Articles for this month:

Can You Say... "Hero?" by Tom Junod, Esquire, February 2014.  
A profile of Mister Rogers.

A Journey to the Center of the World by Jon Mooallem, The New York Times Magazine, February 19, 2014. 
Why 85-year-old Jacques-André Istel established a town (population: 2) on 2,600 acres in the middle of the Arizona desert (but not before becoming a sky diving legend, among other things).

The Secret Life of Grief by Derek Thompson, The Atlantic, December 2013.
The writer on losing his mother to cancer, and on the science of grieving

There and Back Again by Nick Paumgarten, The New Yorker, April 16, 2007. 
A look at the lives of commuters. 

For those of you who use e-readers or tablets, I've created a handy "readlist" that contains all four articles... (click the link to choose your best format)

    Can't make it tonight, but really enjoyed the readings. The reading on grief mentions Dan Gilbert. Check out his TED talk: "The surprising science of happiness."

    I may not make it tonight,but hope to. My favorite readings so far. I thought all of them (except one which I did not like) were engagingly presented for many reasons. I hope to hear the discussions, but if not, next time!

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.
