Looking Ahead–May 2nd

Greetings friends!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower was fun to read, wasn’t it? Its surface simplicity belies the serious nature of the content. Thanks for your participation!
In May, we meet on the 4th to talk about G.K. Chesterton’s The Club of Queer Trades. This book is available for free via http://www.guttenberg.org and can be downloaded to the Kindle or the Kindle app.
Hope to see you all on the 4th at 12:30 pm when we shall also finalize the list of books for the next academic year. 🙂
See you all then!

Thanks for the participation in yesterday’s stimulating book club meeting. Philomena stirred emotions and thoughts and awakened the conscience of readers.
The next book on our reading list for this semester is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Hope to see more of us on the 13th of April in room 101 E.
Meanwhile, we have a president for the club: Mr. Mohamed Ghazal and a vice president: Miss Brooklyn Dodds. If there are questions about the book club, please get in touch with one of us. Mr. Ghazal and Miss. Dodds can be reached through campus email (first class).
