Meeting Update

The Powerful Women Readers met March 31st at Hope Village in Friendswood.  The food was wonderful, and the conversation was lively.  Attendance was sparse, but the quality time and fellowship was extraordinary.

We agreed that weekdays were not an optimal time to meet, and that the next get-together will be at Rae’s on a Sunday afternoon in late June or early July.

The selected/recommended list of books for this third quarter will be the suggestions made for  last quarter plus two more novels from Stephanie Kallos (listed for Language Arts:A Novel last quarter) Broken for You , her debut novel, and Sing Them Home.  Also we added a new category, non-fiction (as differentiated from Autobiographies/Biographies/Memoir.  The first book selected for this category was The Art of Grace by Sarah L. Kaufman.
HAPPY READING!

This year, I will have been a member of AAUW (American Association of University Women) for fifty years, a life time member (which means my fellow AAUW members will begin to pay my annual dues. (ha ha) In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015 and went on from there (See "Introduction",first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 27th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.
