Final Middlemarch Book Group Meeting

This post is to document that we will be having our final book group meeting for Middlemarch by George Eliot. It will be tonight at Kris' house.

We are two books away from reaching our 50th book. Wow! We should do something big, but not necessarily long, to celebrate.

The Invisible Man Discussion

Hello Gals!
This Friday, September 23rd at 6 pm we will be getting together to discuss our most recent book, The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells.
It was suggested that we bring invisible food and just pretend to eat. That would be fun like tea parties when we were young but the food always tastes so bland, right! So, here is another thought. Garden delights? Several of our book club members have gardens and harvest is in full swing. We could have some yummy garden vegetable dishes to help put to use what we have grown. If you don't have a garden then you can bring a dessert. We always like at least one dessert. If you don't have time we will be happy with whatever comes to the table.
The discussion will be at my house this time. The movie is only 1 hour and 15 minutes roughly.

See you then hopefully,
Sharon

Hey, girls! There's a fun event coming up on Sept. 20 at the Mondak Heritage Center @ 7 PM: NAN presents: Montana Repertory Theatre in Bronte to the Future! Sounds like a fun adaptation of Jane Eyre & other works by Charlotte Bronte. Cost: $15 (unless you already have a season pass) Who ants to go with me?
The Northeastern Arts Network presents Montana Repertory Theatre's "Bronte to the Future!" Tuesday, September 20th at 7pm. The Brontë sisters, Emily and Charlotte, having told their most well-known tales—Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, respectively—now want to leave the past behind and explore a future time in order to see what will happen to their characters in a more contemporary setting. Brontë to the Future! is a mashup that places the Brontës’ beloved Jane and Rochester and Catherine and Heathcliff in the world of today—and possibly tomorrow—while retaining all the romance and Gothic splendor of the original stories. Season tickets for the Big Sky Concert Series are available by contacting any NAN Board Member or the MonDak Heritage Center. Season tickets: Adults- $50, Senior (60+)- $45, Students- $35, and Family- $100. At the door, tickets are: $15 for adults, $13 for seniors (60+) and $10 for students.

OK, so regarding "Tarzan of the Apes" that we are reading: I dan't understand why the author thought lions can't climb trees. Did anyone else wonder about that? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3149734/Pride-comes-fall-treemendously-risky-place-lion-sleeping-like-logs.html .
