Hope you get this on time, I made a trip this past weekend to
Malaga,Spain and had my bag stolen from me with my passport and credit
cards in it. The embassy is willing to help by letting me fly without
my passport, I just have to pay for a ticket and settle Hotel bills.
Unfortunately for me, I can't have access to funds without my credit
card, I've made contact with my bank but they need more time to come
up with a new one. I was thinking of asking you to lend me some quick
funds that I can give back as soon as I get in. I really need to be on
the next available flight.
I can forward you details on how you can get the funds to me. You can reach me via email or Blue Island hotel's desk phone,
There are several book clubs out there but they either seem to be disbanding, specialized or for women only so I decided to start this one. I am the former organizer of a large book club in Nashville which, I'm proud to say, is still going strong and I hope to bring that same success to this one. I had the opportunity to read a lot of great books I may not have picked up on my own and I hope to be introduced to even more!
This is a co-ed bookclub that will meet once a month, at local coffee shops and cafes in the area, and discuss one book per month. While the meetups will happen primarily in the Edgewater/Andersonbille/Rogers Park area, it isn't limited to people who live in those areas; all are welcome!
Books will be selected through a nomination and voting process (via the polling system on Meetup) and provided three months at a time so folks (especially those who like to use the library) have a chance to find and read the books.
Other events that don't require reading a book (but do have a literary theme) will also be set up such as checking out the movie versions of books we've read, live productions, etc.
