November Book Club Meetup

  • November 25, 2013 · 6:30 PM

This months book is Life of Pi

In Canada, a writer visits the Indian storyteller Pi Patel and asks him to tell his life story. Pi tells the story of his childhood in Pondicherry, India, and the origin of his nickname. One day, his father, a zoo owner, explains that the municipality is no longer supporting the zoo and he has hence decided to move to Canada, where the animals the family owns would also be sold. They board on a Japanese cargo ship with the animals and out of the blue, there is a storm, followed by a shipwrecking. Pi survives in a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena and a male Bengal tiger nicknamed Richard Parker. They are adrift in the Pacific Ocean, with aggressive hyena and Rickard Parker getting hungry. Pi needs to find a way to survive.

      Yes there is a potluck every month. Are you going to Thanksgiving dinner? If so, you can give me dues there. Something has come up so I will not be at the book club meeting now.

    Hello Everyone! I will be hosting Book Club at my husbands office this month. I will try and give better directions this time so those of you that didn't attend there the last time won't have as much trouble finding it. The name of the Business is Summit Chiropractic. It is located at 2409 Dearborn Suite I. It is on the second Floor of the Anderson Building. It is a Tan Building with Green Trim. The easiest way to enter the office is to enter from Reserve St. between The Living Room Furniture and the Fast Trip Car Wash. There is a lot of parking once you drive thru past the Living Room and to the front of the building where my husband's office is. You will see a big sign for Rocky Mountain Hospice on the side of the Building where we will be at. If you need help, please feel free to call my cell phone. 239-0705. Hope to see you all there:)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
