Wonderland Book Club - Holiday Party/Gift Exchange

Bring a wrapped book to exchange at our holiday party!

Join us on the last Friday of every month from 10:00 am to 12:00pm at Center for Excellence, 3803-B Computer Drive, Suite 106, Raleigh, NC 27609. It is just south of 440 off of Six Forks Road.

Many of us read fiction like writers, so this group is especially attuned to aspiring writers who want to know more about the craft of writing. The books we chose are all available in paperback and can be found at the library in print or audio.

The Wonderland Book Club is sponsored by the North Carolina Writers' Network (NCWN) www.ncwriters.org

    Our holiday gathering and used wrapped book exchange was the best-attended since I started Wonderland Book Club back in 2008! Wow! AND, we had guests join us who'll hopefully return for all of our fabulous books and authors in 2015. Stay tuned for the full listing of 2015 authors. Thank you again for those members who came to our monthly meetings this year and took the time to read well! See you in the New Year, my friends!

    I have a home renovation going on that was supposed to be finished last Thursday ... it's still going on. I HAVE to apply my efforts there tomorrow. With deep regret, I will miss our Christmas celebration ... guess I'll have to eat those white chocolate dipped ginger cookies all by myself! Happiest of Holidays to all.

    It was a great meeting, more than just a chance for chatting and the book exchange. With several writers in attendance, and quite a few aspiring ones, the group talked for a while about the past and next year's writers, and then shared a great deal about their individual experiences. It felt like a choir of voices talking about a magical world of ideas... I guess that's the Wonderland on the club's name. A wonderful end of year event!

    Thanks, Alice, for all you do to make this possible.

    Hi, folks, I'm sorry I won't be able to make the holiday party or club meetings in general for the forseeable future. I've taken on teaching another (yoga) class on Friday mornings, and it conflicts with Wonderland. I've enjoyed my nearly three years with the club and hope to return someday! Take care.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
