******NOTE THE DATE CHANGE***** DUE TO WORK TRAVEL I HAVE HAD TO MOVE THE MEETUP ONE WEEK LATER*******NOW[masked] SAME TIME SAME PLACE********* WELCOME! To keep with the Halloween Spirit we have decided to read "Dracula" by Bram Stoker. Here is a short synopsis of the book. Hope to see you there. A true masterwork of storytelling, Dracula has transcended generation, language, and culture to become one of the most popular novels ever written. It is a quintessential tale of suspense and horror, boasting one of the most terrifying characters ever born in literature: Count Dracula, a tragic, night-dwelling specter who feeds upon the blood of the living, and whose diabolical passions prey upon the innocent, the helpless, and the beautiful. But Dracula also stands as a bleak allegorical saga of an eternally cursed being whose nocturnal atrocities reflect the dark underside of the supremely moralistic age in which it was originally written -- and the corrupt desires that continue to plague the modern human condition.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
