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

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.

Went to see Storm Warning movie I blogged about

By Pam. This was a not-well-publicized Round Rock Reads event [even library employees at the movie admitted that], and the LAST RR Reads event on Crusade for Justice. There were only 10 people other than the author Ken Anderson and library staff. Ken, who had never heard of the movie, watched it with us. When he spoke after the movie he said "wow", then "no resemblance to Dan Moody's life".... I beg to differ. It was a dark movie, but KKK is a dark subject. Ronald Reagan was great. This was the only movie Doris Day ever died in - no funny business here. I asked Ken how he researched for the book. He said by looking at 365 days x 7 years of Austin American (morning and afternoon editions) on microfilm/fiche (I get those mixed up). I also asked about other books about Moody or Fergusons. He said no one has written any except there is a book on Ma Ferguson that is quite good. He laughed and said he isn't really welcomed in Bell County anymore!

Thanks, Pam! Great opportunity for you to get to chat with the author. That is too bad there wasn't a bigger crowd, though - that can be disappointing for those who are involved in the event. What you say makes me more interested in the Moody book.I need some human interest to be able to enjoy a history book! Netflix has Storm Warning. -Claudia
