Let's meet to discuss We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler

  • Feb 9, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi all.  I had to change  the date because work is sending me  out of town this weekend. Hope you all can make it. Please update your RSVP as necessary. Thanks!

We'll start with We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, which was recommended by a former English professor of mine. After we meet for the first time, I will post a book list for upcoming meetings.

Note that Tiger Lily Cafe takes cash only. They have coffee/tea, etc. and food. Since we are using the space, it's common courtesy to purchase a little something from the proprietor. Other than that, there are no "dues" for this meetup group.

Thank you and looking forward to meeting you!

    Hi all. Since we have such a large turnout, I'm changing the venue since it can accommodate more people. I'll try for a more intimate locally owned venue again for future meetups. Thanks!

    Oh no, I am unable to make the new date for this because of a family birthday party. I was looking forward to this but hope to meet everyone at the next one. This has been a great book so far.

    I am thrilled that we have such a great turnout for this meetup! The Tiger Lily cafe is kind of small though so we might "need a bigger boat". I'll talk to them there within the next week or so to see if they can accommodate us. If not I'll look into other places in Port Jeff. Hopefully we will be okay with the Tiger Lily though. I will keep you all posted!
