7/26/09 Meeting Notes

We had a great time at Olive Garden for Sunday Lunch and wish that you all could have been there!! Here are some notes from the meeting:

I. Overall everyone enjoyed "Keepsake Crimes" and a few of the members are even continuing on with the series (Yay!!)...Here are some of the questions that Bridget asked us...

1. Consider the ending...Did you expect it or were you surpried by what happened? Was is neatly wrapped up or was it unresolved?
--None of us guessed who the murderer was and definietly did not expect the reasoning behind the murder...It was wrapped up for the most part but we all wanted to know what happend with Carmela and Shamus ( I am personally hoping that they get back together, bc I really liked him!!)...We all loved the invisible ink (clever Carmela!!)

2. Can you pick out a passage that strikes you as particulary profound or interesting?
--"Never argue with someone who buys ink by the gallon"

Fun Facts:
-St. Cyril's Cemetery does not exsist in New Orleans
-Oven wall vaults are used in St Louis Cemetery in New Orleans
-Vanishing ink pens for scrapbooking do exsist!

II. Next Book Club Meeting
--The next Book Club Hostess is Samantha
--This month's book is "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffenegger
--Can be purchased at Barnes and Nobles for $14.95
--The next book club meeting will be held at the Rave movie theatre to enjoy a showing of this movie (Time and date to be determined at a later time)

"The Time Traveler's Wife is the story of Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, who have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry finds himself periodically displaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.
