The Night Circus

by Erin Morgenstern

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance.

    I'm changing my rsvp from yes to no for this month. A former coworker passed away yesterday & her memorial service is this Tuesday, same time as book club. I will pencil in for September, hope you all have a great dinner & a book discussion as well.

    Did you all see that Cafe Alma is closing its St Petersburg location and re-opening in John's Pass? At one time, this group used to go there a couple times a year. Bummer.

      Kathy, could you make it clear when reservations open? I have heard more than one answer to this question.

    • Kathie

      Reservations open 65 days before the date of the meeting.

    I heard that but I didn't know they were closing the one on 1st Ave. do you know when they're closing?? Perhaps we should have one more meeting there if we can?

      I thought of that, but their last day is this Sunday. Maybe we'll go to their new location for a meeting, check it out.

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