Great News Readers!

Several of us have gotten together to read a book during the months that Karla is off. We are going to read:

We will meet on Thursday, August 22, at 9:30 am at SES in the back room, the Patio Room, of the Conference Center. The September date TBA.
We realize that the time is not good for those who are working, but it works for us and everyone is welcome to join us.
Jane, Gerry, Anne, and Carol
Thank you Jane, Gerry, Anne, and Carol!
I have a little bit of follow-up to pass along after The Power and the Glory. It’s interesting reading, particularly about the saints of the Mexican Revolution:
Happy Reading, Karla
