    We're at our max for attendance in my tiny living room. If anyone needs to cancel, please do so asap, because someone else wants to come.

    • Joan P.

      No, I don't want you or anyone to cancel who is planning to come -- I'm just prodding anyone who might be a no-show to cancel instead.

    Hi! I'm excited in that I already have this book and can't wait to join in on the short story discussion! Could I get an e-mail to the location?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
