February 21, 2007 Meeting
Gung Hay Fat Choy!
The turnout last week was delightfully staggering. I look forward to seeing all of you and your friends this Wednesday.
This meeting will finish the process of sorting folks into smaller, more manageable groups, perhaps around certain titles (Last week I suggested Atwell’s The Robber Bride, Sontag’s Volcano Lover, and Allison’s Bastard Out of Carolina. On the blog, various members have suggested: Diamant’s Red Tent, Proulx’s Wyoming Stories, Geek Love, Naslund’s Ahab’s Wife, and Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies among others). Or groups can accommodate their various schedules (there is nothing sacred about Wednesday nights). I also want to talk for just a minute or two about how to make a good book club choice, and the role of the individual group facilitators. Please feel free to append your thoughts about any of these things to this blog posting prior to our meeting.
Speaking of the blog. Many thanks to those of you who wrote in and started a discussion about books in the last weeks. For a lot of us, this is our first experience with blogging. As the reading groups form up, I will post a special area for each of you to communicate with each other, as well as continue to the handle the posts for the whole of the Betty’s List Book Club.
