Third Sunday Discussion Group XVIII (2nd Annual Anniversary of Shakers :-)

Please come celebrate Shakers' birthday month with a Third Sunday mingle!


Theme: Great Books' Fest

READ this --> In addition to video viewings and subsequent discussions, bring in your favorite book(s) [no more than 2)] and read a concise passage that sticks with you the most about the book to your fellow Shakers. Additionally, explain just why your particular literary tome reigns supreme over all other works you have ever read.

*                                                     *                                                    *

Format: Up to 2 books you bring in order to read a brief passage from and discuss to the group why you like the books. Also, two videos to anchor our conversations around.

**Watch the videos before coming.**

*If you don't plan on coming, then there is no need to RSVP.*

    Romeo and Juliet, Alice in Wonderland, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter oh my! Remember to bring your favorite book(s) to our upcoming meet so you can read aloud your favorite passage and discuss with the group the magic and wonder you experience each time you delve into the text. (Note: can be fiction or non-fiction)
