The group met for nine weekly discussion sessions on Tuesdays beginning Tuesday January 24, 2017 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m at the Sugar Land Fort Bend Library (the First Colony Barnes & Noble Bookstore didn’t allow us back–we are SUCH a rowdy group). Many thanks to Enid Tovy who has organized this interesting group for 30+ years. No expertise, only interest (and preparation), is required. For more information contact: Enid Tovy or Bill Johnson.
