    Very sorry,migraine just hit after up much of night b/c 87 yr Mom in GA possibly having surgery & I was preparing to head 4 airport.With Julia's help I found Dork of Cork thru Amazon & started reading 3/13 & was glad had gone extra mile 2 find beyond n/a on e-reader or library.I had looked forward to discussing the fragile & multifaceted aspects of" beauty" so "beautifully" expressed in this one-of a-kind book.I'm very interested in what others thought.I was hoping we could contribute a brief discussion on a thread in the Meet-Up discussion section. Or please feel free to contact me via my personal e-mail.I am so disappointed to miss a 2nd mtg in a row- but espec this one.I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts. Txs,Nanci

    Can't make this month, but look forward to LCL (That's Lady Chatterley's Lover although if Linda Chapa LaVia was attending, then it would be both).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
