Special Interest Groups Reports
Wm reported that the Readers’ Group met on Sunday, the 12th of November with three members in attendance. The book for discussion was Strange Robby by Selina Rosen, which all disliked. While the book h ad some interesting ideas and a few twists on some old ideas, the characters were not particularly likable, some of their decisions were unbelievable, and the denouement was unsatisfactory. Next month, the group meets on December 10 to discuss Laura Underwood’s Ard Magister.
Wm also report that the Writers’ Group met on Sunday the 22nd of October, with four members in attendance. The next meeting is scheduled for November 26, where works by members Pete and Wendy will be discussed.

The meeting adjourned at 2:45 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Shelby Smith, Secretary
