    Fabulous time. Great conversation. The Wine Exchange was a pretty good venue, but at times it was hard to hear the other end of the table. Linda did a great job hosting!

    I'm so sorry but my brother was checked into the hospital unexpectedly and I have to be there. I'm not able to come after all today. I apologize for any inconvenience. I really was looking forward to meet.

    How will I find the group today? Do you have signs? I haven't been to a meetup in years so I don't remember!

      Hi Nicole. The reservation is under my name & we are set for an indoor table. The hostess should be able to point you to our table. See you soon!

    When I've done this approach in the past with another group, we were free to discuss up to 3 books. What made you want to read the book? Was it like you expected? These were questions in addition to the ones already noted. All genres are welcome. Sorry but you may end up with a longer "books to read" list!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
