Pulse - December Meetup (Silver Spring)
IMPORTANT NOTE: This month's meetup is on the 2nd Thursday, rather than the usual 3rd Thursday. We are meeting on December 13th. Our book for December is Pulse: Stories by Julian Barnes. This book of 14 short stories was chosen in consideration of this busy time of year. Our discussion will focus primarily on the second group of short stories: "The Limner," "Complicity," "Harmony," "Carcassonne," and "Pulse." The stories concern an itinerant portrait painter, a couple coming together through an illicit cigarette and a song heard in a Chinese restaurant, a magnetic healer of the 18th century and his talented patient, love at first site, and the devotion shared among a man and wife and their only child. As a courtesy to me, and as a help to the restaurant, please un-RSVP if your plans change and you know you will not be coming to the discussion. Knowing how many members are coming helps me and the restaurant prepare.

What we're about

Meet other book people in a local book club. We read a book each month from a wide variety of genres. We decide which books to read by on-line polls. The book, 501 Must Read Books, is one source for our choices. We meet on the third Thursday of each month. Come to share your opinions and observations, have something to eat and/or drink, and make new friends from the neighborhood.
