The poll for June/July is live - vote, and the top two choices will be the next books we read. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdH2mpYqpfq6R1lkj9XoLfjTzucZm58yd-EvXx01DPU63q1TQ/viewform?usp=sf_link This May, we'll be reading The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. From Goodreads: Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you’re only seventeen? Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of death and destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire… But Akaran has its own secrets—thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most…including herself.
We were talking on Saturday about getting together to watch Doctor Who. I believe that Way Station in Brooklyn (http://waystationbk.blogspot.com/) has weekly showings on Sundays at 5pm (while the show is in season, of course). Unfortunately, I'm not going to be around the next 2 Sundays, but would this be something people are interested in for the future? Or would anymore else like to "host" this meetup over the next 2 weeks?
The new exhibition, "EXPO 1" up at P.S.1 sounds pretty interesting. From the website: "EXPO 1: New York imagines a contemporary art museum dedicated to ecological concerns, featuring modules, interventions, solo projects, and group exhibitions that take over the entirety of MoMA PS1..." Dunno if any of you geek girls geek out about art, but I kinda want to see this and would love company :) It's up til September. Here's the website: http://www.momaps1.org/expo1/module/dark-optimism/
I am a member in this website http://couples.howaboutwe.com/dates/437-shot-through-the-heart and they put up an offer to take archery classes for two people! The prize is really good and you get one month free so you can create the account, get the offer and then eliminate it! (That is what I am planning to do) And since is for two people and I am not part of a couple right now I though we could create a group date to take archery classes!
