June Book Discussion: The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway

Sorry everyone - I completely forgot to close the poll and pick the book for May.  Because I messed up, I'm going to push our next discussion to June 25 so everyone has time to read the book.

We will be discussing: The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway

Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend. For those who are still interested in hanging out with us, we can still meet on Wednesday, May 28 just to catch up!

    Just wanted to say I had a lot of fun meeting everyone at book club yesterday! Looking forward to getting the chance to read the book and be involved in the discussion. Not sure if you meet up outside of the book club scheduled times but up for it if you do!

    There's a play, that Kayla was talking about at the meeting, called Ordinary Days. It's playing at Roundhouse but unfortunately ends this Sunday. http://www.roundhousetheatre.org/boxoffice/performances/

    4545 East-West Highway
    Bethesda, MD

    If anyone wants to check it out on Sunday at 3pm, let me know ASAP. It's $35 and it looks like they have plenty of seats left. I can buy the tickets so we can all sit together and you can reimburse me.

    Message me directly if you're interested.

      There are a bunch of plays in July as part of the Capital Fringe Festival, so one of those could be an option as well. Looks like there's a one-time fee of $5 per person for an "admissions button" then $17 per ticket per play (though there are some options that could make it cheaper for a group). Here's the link to the list of plays for anyone interested: https://www.capitalfri...­.

    Not to sound really old school, but the Bethesda Public Library has 32 copies available right now :)

    • Jeana Z.
