Mar 5 - Thursday - 7pm - 9pm Book Club
For the month of February the Hearthstone Book Club will be reading:
"Improvement: A novel" by Joan Silber
One of our most gifted writers of fiction returns with a bold and piercing novel about a young
single mother living in New York, her eccentric aunt, and the decisions they make that have
unexpected implications for the world around them. Reyna knows her relationship with Boyd
isn’t perfect, yet as she visits him throughout his three-month stint at Rikers Island, their
bond grows tighter.
Kiki, now settled in the East Village after a journey that took her to Turkey and around the world, admires her niece’s spirit but worries that she always picks the wrong man. Little does she know that the otherwise honorable Boyd is pulling Reyna into a cigarette smuggling scheme, across state lines, where he could risk violating probation. When Reyna ultimately decides to remove herself for the sake of her four-year-old child, her small act of resistance sets into motion a tapestry of events that affect the lives of loved ones and strangers around them. A novel that examines conviction, connection, and the possibility of generosity in the face of loss, Improvement is as intricately woven together as Kiki’s beloved Turkish rugs, as colorful as the tattoos decorating Reyna’s body, with narrative twists and turns as surprising and unexpected as the lives all around us.

First Thursday of the month at the clubhouse 7PM to 9PM
Book Club Meets - The purpose to the club is to enlighten our members and get them out of their "comfort zone" with their "normal" type of book they read. You'd be surprised how many other types of books you may like. Join us for stimulating discussion about a new book every month. The group, led by Joan Ebersbach, discusses the book we've read during the last month and chooses a new book for the following month.
Second Saturday of the month at the clubhouse 6PM to ??
Residents get together here in the clubhouse to socialize for fun. It's also a way to celebrate anyone having a birthday that month. Everyone is welcomed HOWEVER the only rule is that each individual must bring what they are to drink and each individual must bring what they are to snack on (dessert, snacks, appetizers, crock pot surprises, etc.). As always it is always nice to bring extra to share .... Whatever is brought in must be brought out. Donating extra paper goods is always appreciated.
