GREAT WORKS BOOK CLUB - some adjustments to the upcoming schedule, check our calendar!
Thursday, March 11, 2010 10:41 AM
As many of you know, ANNA KARENINA is really a daunting book in size and scope. Many of our members have suggested that with just a little more time they would be more prepared to discuss the book and so you will see that Anna is scheduled as our April selection. We have CANCELLED the meeting for March 23. I hope this does not inconvenience anyone and we look forward to having a great turnout in April.
HOWEVER, the winner of the poll was "A Sun Also Rises" and since we cancelled the meeting on 23rd, we've arranged to hold a JOINT MEETING on Sunday, MARCH 28 with the Hemingway Book Club. Ted, the Hemingway organizer will be leading the discussion but we hope you can attend at the Boxcar Lounge on Ave B.
Finally, we will be reading Madame Bovary in May, and Heart of Darkness in June. July and Aug dates are scheduled with selections to follow. I will POST A NEW POLL so PLEASE VOTE when you have a chance, even if you already voted.
One more thing, about our MEETING LOCATION. For now, we continue to plan our meeting for McNally Jackson bookstore however the timing is sometimes a problem for us and so we MAY NEED TO relocate our meeting. We are looking for SUGGESTIONS FOR A VENUE so please email Jason or me when you can with ideas.
Sorry for the lengthiness of the message but so much is going on. Thanks for your patience, active involvement and for contributing to great discussions!
