The order is subject to change based on member feedback.
If you are interested in reading and meeting about the first book, Silence, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org .
RSVP’s are not binding, but will help us anticipate the number of participants. In your email, please also indicate where you are located in Houston, e.g. Sugarland, the Heights, Katy, EaDo, etc. This will help me to choose a meeting place each month.
At the top of each meeting I will welcome newcomers, give a brief introduction of our book club, and ask you to introduce yourself. We will then segue into the discussion. I would like for members to be active participants! If you are interested in leading the inaugural discussion on Silence, please say so.
After concluding each meeting, another similar announcement will be sent out via the Newsletter and Facebook.
