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!

We'll always have Paris

For those now reading The Paris Wife, may I suggest a photo book that will give an excellent feel for life among the artists and writers in Montparnasse during the 20's? If you can find a copy, take a look at Kiki's Paris: Artists and Lovers 1900-1930. And be sure to read the captions and text (and even the footnotes!). It really enriches your understanding of the life and times of the art community in Paris. It seems like everyone was there then.This is also when Barnes was amassing his wonderful collection of art (which some of you may have seen part of, when it came to the Kimball).
