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. ]

Sunday, May 1, 4:00pm, at the Laura Bush Library, when Jo Ivester will discuss her book, The Outskirts of Hope.The book is a memoir of Aura Kruger and her family's life in the small, all-Black town of Mound Bayou, Mississippi, in the 1960s. Those of us who knew the incredible Aura know the basics of her story there, but Jo's book has captured it in a deeply meaningful, relevant way. Promises to be an amazing conversation!

Recommend One Second After as a complement to World Made by Hand

Hello book friends,
I have just finished our January selection World Made by Hand which I very much look forward to discussing in January.  After you’ve finished it, if you’re looking for more, I recommend One Second After* by William R. Forstchen as a good complement. One Second After addresses life in the IMMEDIATE aftermath (in this case of an electromagnetic pulse), while World Made by Hand represents life 10+ years later. Each book triggered lots of pondering - but about somewhat different things.
*Billie Perkins nominated this book for our club a few years ago but it was not selected.
