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. ]

Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. 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.

Great and uplifting film!

Interesting article about the art and calling the red feathers depicted in the painting representative of the blood of Christ. To me, that is a bit far-fetched, but not knowing whether that is a custom in art history, I will consider it good thinking and writing. I now have a copy of Donna Tartt's 2 other books, The Little Friend and The Secret History. Readers seem to have rediscovered them and seem to like them.
