  • rocky river readers

    april 15

    7:00 pm, church parlor

    Due to Easter Monday being on our regular meeting day, Rocky River Readers will meet for April ONLY on the 3rd Monday night. n Monday,


    Our book for discussion in April is Note to Self: Inspiring Words by Inspiring People with an Introduction by Gayle King.  You may be familiar with the basis for this book if  you watch CBS' This Morning Show.  Periodically they have someone famous or someone who has done something notable write a letter to their younger self.  It may take the shape of telling the younger self the obstacles they will face and how to persevere. It may focus on a specific part of the "older self's" life the "younger self" will see as a turning point. Each of the 26 notes are short and inspiring. Even if you do not attend the book club, please read this book. Note to Self is a reflection on the joys and challenges of growing up.
