All, since it is Labor day weekend, I am moving the Meetup to Thursday, Sept 5. Next month will continue to be on the first Monday.
Also, drum role please, by popular request, we are going to introduce a bit of structure (gasp). Each month, I will suggest a few articles that you can (as purely an option) read and be prepared to discuss at the group. Let's make this a group selection process. If you read an article and love it, email me and I'll add it to the list for the following month.
For the Thursday, Sept 5, meeting, these are the articles are:
THE GIVEAWAY (This article really cracked me up...)
There you have it.
I hope to see you all on Thursday.
P.S. There have been some suggestions around the Carton Caption Contest. Maybe we could all come up with our own caption candidates and discuss (and laugh about) them at the meeting. Let's discuss next week.
By popular demand, here is a FAQ for this meetup.
Q: I only look at the cartoons and never really read the articles. May I still attend?
Q: I used to read the New Yorker but I haven't recently. May I still attend?
A: Yes. We are about like-minded people getting together and socializing. There will be no test on recent issues.
Q: Are we going to cover specific articles or have designated articles we should read ahead of time?
A. Yes, but still come if you haven't read them.
