    Nice exhibition and really nice to catch-up with the members. A shame that we could not see the entire book covers. Only seeing the front covers and not being able to manipulate the books was a bit disappointing.

    Hi Guys,
    I hope you are well and enjoying the sunny weather,
    Note that the Kemistry Gallery is a small place and that we will stay there for around 30min. We will then go to the a place around for a drink or brunch (probably at the Book club). If you can't make it at the last minute or already know it, please remove your reservation from the list!!!
    See you tomorrow,
    Denis
