Books for June-Dec 2014

REVISED DATES AND HOSTESSES - please update your calendar :-)

A reminder to hostesses (from "how we roll")
          The hostess is responsible for the meeting that takes place at her home - this includes discussion questions and menu ideas and sending out a reminder email one week before the meeting and everyone will RSVP to the hostess.  The hostess leads the discussion using the discussion questions to keep us moving along. Within a week after the meeting, the hostess will post "discussion highlights."  The plan is keep this simple: 1) a few things we liked about the book  2) anything we did not like about the book  3) a brief comment about the menu ex. favorite item; new food or recipe that we tried, etc.
