Please join us Tuesday, October 15, when we'll discuss Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro (suggested by Catherine M.)

As children, Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy attended an exclusive boarding school in the English countryside, a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules, where teachers were constantly reminding them of how special they were. Years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time, she looks back at their shared past to understand what it is that makes them special—and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, and beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is modern classic by a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Please RSVP so we know how many to expect. If you can't make it at the last minute, that's OK; just let us know by changing your RSVP on the site. And feel free to bring a guest, but include your guest in the RSVP.

I try to arrive early, but can't always manage it. If you arrive first, please pull some tables together, depending on how many RSVPs we have. If you have a physical copy of the book, place it out on the table to help other members locate us. I'll do the same if I'm first, and I usually bring table tents, as well.

(Alexandria Book Circle does not charge for membership or attendance. But with Meetup's recent rate increase -- now $15 a month -- it is necessary to put a collection box on the table at our discussions, for any small and completely voluntary contribution you'd like to make, to help defray the cost. Even the change you get back from buying your meal is appreciated.)

Hope to see you there!
