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. ]

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.

Goldfinch suggestion

When you are reading The Goldfinch, I suggest that each time an artist is mentioned, you image search for works by that artist. As an example, she mentioned Adriaen Coorte, a Dutch artist I was not familiar with. His still lives are well worth examining.

Great idea! Thanks, DennisI am going to bring a photo of The Goldfinch, but I don't know how to get it to be visible to everyone. I thought about passing around my tablet, but it's sensitive to touch and would probably end up bringing up Facebook or the weather or, worse, a blank screen and losing whatever is on the screen that we'd be passing around. I will think about it and would appreciate suggestions about it. -Claudia

I hope everyone really works to finish the book before our meeting. Lots to discuss in there, but only if we read it all.
