The afternoon book group meets next Tuesday, April 5, 1:00 at Pat’s. Linda will be reviewing “Dead Wake” by Erik Larson. I’m halfway through the book and find it quite interesting. Pat reminded us the other day that a documentary of the Lusitania will be on the Smithsonian channel (Comcast 915 or 124) Monday 8-9. Will try to watch.
Diane Rehm had a few good book interviews this week.
The Midtown Cinema will be showing “Hello, My Name is Doris” with Sally Field. Saw the promos and it looked funny. Check website for schedule.
We have a few suggestions for next year’s afternoon group:Lillian: “The Lifeboat” by Charlotte Regan, “Winter Men” by Jasper Bugge. Lorraine: “My Brilliant Friend” by Elena Ferrante, “Circling the Sun” by Paula McClane, (sp), “The Witches” by Stacy Schiff, “Austerlitz” by W.G. Sebald (morning group).
The HD Live presentation of Madame Butterfly will be at The Camp Hill Cineplex, 2 April at 1:00. Can’t wait to see the staging, and of course, the singing.
Hope everyone has a healthy and Happy Passover and Easter.
Hope to see you soon.
