July Book Club Meeting

  • July 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM

The book is "Brain on Fire" by Susannah Cahalan. It's a fascinating look at mental illness and the diagnosis of rare disease, from the patient's perspective.

If the weather is warm, I'll be serving mojitos.  Actually, I'll serve them even if it's cold.

    Oh no. I realized that I have double booked myself. I was really looking forward to coming and am more than half way done the book! My other engagement is an early dinner. Can I pop by after if I get done early?

      Absolutely! The meeting will probably end around 10.

      June 25

  • Nellie

    I'm not sure I will get a chance to get the book read by July 11th but would still like to attend

    June 25

    • Emily

      It's an easy read and hard to put down once you start, but you are more than welcome to come whether you've read it or not.

      June 25

  • Ruth

    I have to say, the prospect of mojitos is mighty enticing...however, I too am leaving on vacation July 12 and I won't be able to read the book in time for July 11.
    I would be happy to host later in July or August

    June 24
