Hey All,

I wanted to just let everyone know the 19th is now a firm date and will not be changed. see you there.

As requested a book with some less sad themes, in fact its sort of feel good when you get down to it. Greg assures me his next book will be fun as well. And send any suggestions my way......

As some of you have noticed the bookclub meetups have gotten a little farther apart, rather then the every other week we had been doing for about 6 months. With summer I think most of us are not as driven to read a couple books a month for our book club as we were in say March. When the weather turns cold Im sure well go back to two a month though.

Few stories offer more warmth, wisdom, or generosity than this tale of two boys, their fathers, their friendship, and the chaotic times in which they live. Though on the surface it explores religious faith--the intellectually committed as well as the passionately observant--the struggles addressed in The Chosen are familiar to families of all faiths and in all nations.

"Anyone who finds it is finding a jewel. Its themes are profound and universal."
It is the now-classic story of two fathers and two sons and the pressures on all of them to pursue the religion they share in the way that is best suited to each. And as the boys grow into young men, they discover in the other a lost spiritual brother, and a link to an unexplored world that neither had ever considered before. In effect, they exchange places, and find the peace that neither will ever retreat from again....

Its a good one
