Dear Book Lovers --
In the October meetup, we voted on a location for our holiday party, which was to be the Whittier Community Center. When I finally got down to cases with them, I learned the rental cost would be $60 to $75, which to me seemed prohibitive, given that in the past we enjoyed private homes or apartment clubhouses (free or low cost).
So, instead, I've developed two new options, and I want your vote on which to confirm.
(1) Saturday, December 12, First Spiritual Science Church (3375 S Dahlia, SE Denver, 1/2 mile from I-25, a block north of Hampden), love offering at the door for space rental, pot luck feast in the downstairs social hall, beer or wine okay. Used book gift exchange. We clean up after ourselves. Free parking.
(2) Friday, December 18, Denver Press Club (1330 Glenarm Place, downtown), donation at the door, pot luck feast upstairs, cash bar. Used book gift exchange. We clean up after ourselves. Downtown parking fees.
PLEASE VOTE BY SUNDAY. http://www.meetup.com/denverbookclub/polls/214678/
Also, while you are at the polls, please vote for the February and March book selections. Even better, we could use more nominations in both the fiction and nonfiction categories, so please send your book nominations to Francis (http://www.meetup.com/denverbookclub/members/5757824/
Thanks for voting on the party! I hope to see you this coming Wednesday for our November meetup at the Press Club, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
