[LAWS] Book Discussion and Bring-your-Lunch: ' Dreams of Joy' by Lisa See

  • Nov 16, 2013 · 12:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If you have not read any of Lisa See's books, you are in for a treat.  Please do read Shanghai Girls if you have time as that will give you the background and texture for 'Dreaming of Joy'.

I thought we will try a bring-your-own-lunch and something to share if you like and see how it goes.  This is a beautiful and well cared for garden, which is comprised of 7 areas... Bring your camera if you like to take pictures.   There is no charge for entrance but parking is limited, may want to carpool. 

If you live in the WLA area and want a ride, please post a comment.  I can take additional three people. 

Join me.

    If the weather is not great, there are a number of good restaurants just across the street from the gardens. PF Chang's has lots of room for big groups.

    Pam, either at my house (near Olympic & La Cienega) or at Sharon's house (Brentwood). You can take your pick. When the date gets closer, I'll figure out the times you would need to get to each and I'll send that out along with exact addresses, etc.

    Beth,
    Where should I meet you on the 16th?

    November 3, 2013

    Sharon, it looks like there will now be five of us (you, me, Eva, Pam and Latanya) so I'll drive (bigger car), but I'll still meet you at your house.
