NEXT MEETING:  Tuesday –  December 3, 2019Skipping Christmas, by John Grisham; and A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.

A double header for Christmas! A classic to warm our hearts with favorite memories of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. And a classic tale for modern times, as Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy of holiday traditions when the Kranks decide to flee the holidays.  Enormous consequences ensue.



January 7, 2020.  Orange is the New Black, by Piper Kerman.  With a degree from Smith College, a career, and a boyfriend, well-heeled Piper Kerman’s reckless youth catches up with her.   Convicted of delivering a suitcase of drug money ten years before, she is sentenced to fifteen months at a federal correctional facility.  Kerman learns to navigate this new world, meeting women from all walks of life, who surprise her with small tokens of generosity, hard words of wisdom, and simple acts of acceptance. Heartbreaking, hilarious, and at times enraging, Kerman’s story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison, inspiring an award-winning Netflix series.
