The SPDA book club will be meeting in April to discuss "The Accidental Tourist" by Anne Tyler. We will also watch the movie!


Please bring a snack to share and the beverage of your choice.


Following is a brief synopsis of the book:


In The Accidental Tourist, Anne Tyler presents an intimate portrait of Macon Leary, a middle-aged man coming to terms with the tragic death of his son. After his wife leaves him, Macon cuts himself off from the rest of the world. Almost against his will, he becomes involved with an unconventional woman who helps him cope with his loss and take control of his life.

    Something has come up and I won't be able to make it tonight. I'm bummed :( Please let me know what book you decide on for May and where we will meet. I am happy to host, if needed.

    Book clubbers, FYI, the main course for the dinner will be a veggie pasta casserole. Whatever you want to bring is fine, but salads, desserts, and snacks for the movie would be welcome. See everyone tomorrow

    Ken, as far as I'm concerned if you can not make it for the book discussion, it would be fine to just come for the movie. Based on past meetings, I would estimate that we would start watching the movie around 8:00 p.m.

    I will probably not get to the book, but would like to come for the movie. Would this be OK?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
