It was wonderful that we could find a time and spot to gather prior to the Holidays. It was also nice to see a new member attending our Meet Up! We surely had a lively discussion regarding Henrietta and her family, the narrator, and how science has changed based on the HeLa cells. I hope you all enjoyed the book or at least learned a bit of 'science' history while reading this one.
Even though we did have a great group in attendance last night, I was very disappointed that 6 Divas did not show up or email me to cancel. As you can imagine, it's stressful enough for a small restaurant to hold a table for 12 this time of year but when 1/2 of the party doesn't show, its even worse and rude. If you are not going to make it for any reason, I'd greatly appreciate an email or an RSVP status change. It's not just the time I put into setting up each meet up, it is not fair to the hosting location either.
In reflection of 2011, I've decided to open our meet up group's organizer position to any regular attending and responsible members that may want to host their own Book Club meet ups. If you are interested in becoming an assistance organizer, shoot me an email to discuss.
And finally, to end 2011 and kick off 2012, we've got a brand new selection! The first book on our list, "All But My Life" was selected at random (out of a bread basket) last night. This book was written by Gerda Weissmann Klein.
Please have a wonderful and safe Holiday to all those sticking around NE Ohio and for those of us hitting the road/air/water.
