Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Literary Events

The Friends of the Georgetown Public Library’s Hill Country Authors Series events will be listed here.


Amazon Prime Video has released a series based on stories by Philip K. Dick. It's called Electric Dreams.
Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently scheduled to debut March 30th. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

In Sunlight In a Beautiful Garden

We sat out of the sunlight in the ever-wonderful (climate-controlled) Barnes & Noble and discussed In Sunlight In a Beautiful Garden, by Kathleen Cambor. I had nominated this book because I thought it would be good for discussion, and it was! We had someone who thought the characters weren't developed and someone who thought they were well-developed. We had a few who enjoyed the book and found it compelling and some who found it tedious or couldn't get into it at all. We had some who came to the meeting and hadn't read the book, and some who didn't come to the meeting who had read the book!

The history was interesting! As the nominator and presenter, I did some Internet research and found some historical and current photos. I enjoyed that a lot - I'll have them with me at book group, so please ask me if you want to see them. Or Google "johnstown flood museum" and you'll find a bunch.
