Update Aug ML Malcolm's Visit & Change September book

We are gathering things for M L's  Visit on August 25.  Hopefully can meet with Marilyn Bonnette at the library this week to finalize.
Beverly Martin has agreed to lead the discussion following ML's Presentation (Much like we did for Ad)   
Remember to decorate or wear your hat for the meeting,  prize will be awarded for the most FABULOUS Hat (decided by ML)

After talking/emailing with many of you, we have decided to change the September book to The Mighty Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson.   She writes a column much like Dear Abby in the northeast.  She has also agreed to SKYPE in for our meeting on .Sept 29  (I was amazed!)  
So we need someone to volunteer to host the September meeting with SKYPE facilities   mainly TV hookups and fast internet connection, can bring laptop

Also our October and November authors have already agreed to SKYPE in also.  We will be looking for hostesses for those meetings also.

SEPT 29- The Mighty Queens of Freeville by Amy Dickinson
OCT 27 - Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson
Nov ?   The Lakota Way by Joseph Marshall III   probably  Nov 17 because of Thanksgiving
Dec?  Christmas party

At the September meeting we will also pass the hat for expenses for gifts etc for the author events, probably be between $5-$10 for each member.

Are you working on your scrapbook pages yet?  If you need some assistance Phyllis Hughes has offered to help.

Guess that's it for now,  think I'll go to bed

Night all
