(Y's Women Members Only)
Book Group 2 will meet on Thursday, August 1 from 1:30 to 3:00 pm at Panera  Bread, located in Westport at 1860 Post Road East (next to Home Goods). The book to be discussed is The Country of the Pointed Fire by Sarah Orne Jewett, and the discussion will be led by Nancy Bloom.

Book Group 3 is on vacation in August. We’ll meet again on Friday, September 13 to discuss The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee. Questions? Please contact Doris Levinson at 227-3371 or drjlevinson@gmail.com.
The Movie Club will meet on Wednesday, August 21 at Panera Bread in Westport. We meet informally at 1:00 pm for members who want to socialize and/or have something to eat before we begin discussion at 1:30. Our two August movies are The Farewell and Pavarotti. The Farewell tells the story of “Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) [who] reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai-Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad.” Pavarotti is “a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. Academy Award winner Ron Howard puts audiences front row center for an exploration of The Voice ... The Man ... The Legend. Luciano Pavarotti gave his life to the music and a voice to the world. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage.” If you wish to be added to the e-mail list for future events, please contact Margaret Mitchell at 255-9094 or margaret06824@yahoo.com. Members and all other interested participants are welcome.

And don’t forget that Solos members will be meeting for dinner at 5:45 pm at Compo Beach (at the picnic tables to the right of the cannons) on the following Tuesdays: August 6 and 20, and September 10 and 17.  Bring dinner and a beverage for yourself and a little something to share – like cookies, soup, potato chips, you get the idea. You will NOT need a beach sticker; just tell the guard at the gatehouse that you are a Y’s Woman.
