Active Readers Book Club - Reading Rainbow edition!

Before we dive into a new book for October, let's take a moment to rejuvenate our love for reading in an homage to LeVar Burton's best role: himself on Reading Rainbow!

We'll meet by the cafe in Raleigh's Pullen Park to recommend/geek out over general book suggestions for other members. And then we'll have the chance to recapture the fun of our youth with the park's carousel, miniature train, and pedal boats.

If you want to experience the attractions, you will need tickets, for which you will need cash. If you just want to hang out with the group without riding the attractions, though, that's cool, too!

Please note that only those who have paid their 2013 membership dues can RSVP (the annual dues thing will be manually checked).

More information about Pullen Park can be found here: http://www.raleighnc.gov/arts/content/PRecRecreation/Articles/PullenParkAmusements.html

It should be good fun, but don't take my word for it...

    I won't be able to attend, but something like The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury followed by a Halloween type activity might be fun (i.e., a corn maze/haunted house/farm thing).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
