Hosts: Karen Baker & Joyce Simmelink
When:  3PM Sunday, March 8, 2020
Where : Lexington Ridge Club House, Medina.  (Click for map, when you sign up for this event, include your email and you will receive detailed driving directions)

This year’s selection is EDUCATED by Tara Westover.

 Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention.  It is a tale of fierce family loyalty, and the grief that comes of severing one’s closest ties.  With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes, and the will to change it.

Bring a snack and beverage if you wish (adult beverages are permitted).  Coffee and Tea will be provided.  There is a stove, refridgerator and microwave available.

To sign up contact: KAREN BAKER ( 330.760.6164) OR JOYCE SIMMELINK (440.796.7530).
