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: rrnewneighbors.org [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. ]
The 2015 Texas Book Festival will be October 17th and 18th. Here is a link to a special NEW section from the Book Festival Website - Authors for Your Book Club! It's a short list of good book club books whose authors will be at the festival. Just have a look:

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).
