    Chimanda Ngozi Adichie will be speaking at UVM next Thursday March 20th 5pm at the Ira Allen Chapel. I'm not sure if this is the reason this book was chosen (I just joined last month) but I thought everyone would be interested. Here is a link to the event http://www.uvm.edu/~english/?Page=Adichie.html&SM=eventssubmenu.html

      Hi Phoebe - Just returned from the chapel. Chimamanda Adichie cancelled her lecture due to illness but hopes to reschedule in the fall. I still have your water bottle if you want to stop by to pick it up.

    Thanks for a great evening discussing Half of a Yellow Sun. It looks like a few of us plan to hear Chimamanda's speak next Thursday at Ira Allen Chapel. It was nice to welcome three new members - Cyndy, Cady, and Margi. Someone left a glass water bottle which can be picked up or I can bring it to the next meeting. Call me at[masked]

      That is my water bottle! I wasn't able to make it because the snow storm threw my week off last week. I will call you about picking up the water bottle. I will be at Ira Allen tonight to hear her speak, did you all plan on sitting together or meeting up before hand? Phoebe

      March 20, 2014

    • Wanda S.

      Yes, I'm on my way to Ira Allen right now. I'm wearing a ink sweater and black pants. I'll bring the water bottle and if you spot me I'll hand it over.

    Sorry I have to cancel tonight. My apologies. I really would like to make the next one

    I hope that Thursday's snow doesn't deter anyone from joining us. Please park in front or directly behind the doctor's office next door. Come into the side entry of 81 S. Williams, punch 306# into the keypad and I'll buzz you up. I'll serve beverages and, if time allows, I'm planning to make Ugwu's Jollof Rice. Please bring some food to share.
    I'm thrilled that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is speaking at UVM next Thursday! We've been discussing opportunities to hear one of our authors speak. Hopefully, some of us can attend her lecture.
    btw - Has Kim had her baby yet?
