Post-Holiday Party and White Elephant Book Exchange

Dates around the holidays have filled up quickly, but there is no reason we cannot celebrate after the holiday rush!

Our post-holiday party will include a white elephant book exchange. The idea is to find a book around your house (i.e., not to buy anything) that you are willing to give away, wrap it up, and bring it to the party. Just one book per person. We put the wrapped books in the middle of the table and we all draw numbers. The person with #1 chooses a book to unwrap. The person who drew #2 can either choose a different book to unwrap or take the book from person #1 (in which case, person #1 gets to choose a different book to unwrap), and so on down the line. It is a lot of fun.

I hope to see you all there!

    Not sure. I posted it a while ago and it definitely posted publicly. Check your notification settings with meetup. You should have also received an email from me back in November when we were trying to set a date. If you did not get that, there's an issue between meetup and your email server.
