“ I was really impressed with the depth of the discussion. I appreciated the effort to compare the current book to others the group has will and am tempted to look at past book discussions to add to my "to read" list. Thanks to Vi for being a great facilitator. Regretfully, I'm out of town for your July & August mtgs but am definitely looking forward to plugging back into the group this Fall and meeting your "Fearless Leader," Craig, whose reputation definitely precedes him. ;-) Stay cool! ”

“ A great group. Obviously, everyone is quite literate and articulate. Also, everyone seems quite friendly, and it was an enjoyable experience. I am sure you have already discussed this, but the 3pm Sunday meet time conflicts with (a) music recitals at the Lyceum that are at that same exact time, (b) there is always a Nationals game going on at that same time, (c) when football season comes around, there will always be a Redskins game at that time. I see fewer conflicts if it were (e.g.) at Saturdays at 3pm. ”
