This group is about fun and interesting activities for thoughtful, emotionally healthy people. It was launched in 2013, primarily for primarily for current or past participants in Divorce and Relationship Recovery groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, but is now open to anyone willing to treat others with respect and compassion.

Our events offer a way for people make new friends, go new places, and to do fun things together that are not focused on alcohol or romance. We insist on thoughtful, respectful behavior from everyone in the group and at our events.

Through 2017, this group charged mandatory annual "dues," which were actually donations to the non-profit Divorce and Relationship Recovery Network, which supports six weekly information/support groups (five of them in San Francisco Bay Area) and is planning more in the future. We've done away with the dues, but would like each member to give at least $40 each year - or set up an automatic monthly gift - to support this life-changing work. Symbols like ⑮ , ⑯ and ⑰ denote group members who have given at least that much in the indicated year(s). Please make your contribution (tax-deductible to the full extent of the law) at: http://www.divorceandrelationshiprecovery.networkforgood.com/projects/24372

Please add yourself to our mail list for periodic updates on our work, at: http://www.bit.ly/drrn

Please note that you assume all responsibility for your safety, privacy, transportation to and from and during our events. You should take the same care for these that you would take for any public or online event.

📖 Book Club : The Nickel Boys

Burlingame, CA

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead Hardcover, 213 pages The long string of horrors that took place at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys wasn't a secret, but it might as well have been. Former students of the Florida reform school had spoken out for years about the brutal beatings that they endured at the hands of sadistic employees, but it wasn't until 2012, when University of South Florida anthropologists began to uncover unmarked graves on the school's campus, that the world began to care. The discoveries weren't news to the "White House Boys," a group of men who say they survived brutal assaults by Dozier staffers in a school building known as the White House. The men had raised the alarm for years, but their testimonies were essentially shrugged off. As Colson Whitehead writes in his stunning new novel, inspired by the revelations about the Dozier School, "Plenty of boys had talked of the secret graveyard before, but as it had ever been ... no one believed them until someone else said it." In Whitehead's novel, set in the early 1960s, the reformatory in question is called the Nickel Academy, named after a former leader of the school, although some students say it's really "because their lives weren't worth five cents." The novel follows Elwood Curtis, a young man whose dreams of going to college are dashed when he's sentenced to do time at the school.
