Invitation to Shelby's Book Club

Hello all. Just wanted to send out an invite to you all to see if you'd like to join my Book Club -- I think I've mentioned it before. If you have time, and are interested, please let me know if you would like to participate. It's totally casual, but really fun. We're called The Vikings and generally meet every six weeks or so for a pot luck-style dinner, wine and book chatter (occasionally a game of Apples to Apples).

This month we are reading In the Skin of a Lion by Michael Ondaatje (author of The English Patient).

"Bristling with intelligence and shimmering with romance, this novel tests the boundary between history and myth. Patrick Lewis arrives in Toronto in the 1920s and earns his living searching for a vanished millionaire and tunneling beneath Lake Ontario. In the course of his adventures, Patrick's life intersects with those of characters who reappear in Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning The English Patient." (Google Books)

The Meeting Date is set for Thursday, December 10th, 7:00pm in Arlington, VA. 

Love to have new members!
