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.

Spies in the American Revolution

For September, we are reading a book about Washington's spy ring in the New York area (by Kilmeade, who is, alas, a Fox News hack). If you are interested in learning more about the subject, I might recommend The Fox and The Hound, by Donald Markle (currently in the sales area of Barnes & Noble!), which covers spy operations in all campaigns of the war. For an even more comprehensive look, check out Spies, Patriots, and Traitors: American Intelligence in the Revolutionary War, by Kenneth Daigler (available in paperback as well as Nook). Too interesting a topic to be given as shallow a presentation as Kilmeade.
