Round Rock New Neighbors is a social organization of women welcoming women in the Round Rock area since 1978. Both "new" and "old" neighbors are welcome. For more information: [Barnes & Noble requires that RRNN's book club be open to the public, so you do not need to be an RRNN member to attend book club, and both men and women are welcome and do attend. ]

Literary Events:

The Just Mercy series is happening at the Georgetown Library. Here is what the publicity says: Last night I attended the first discussion of a series of 4 discussions of Just Mercy by Bryan Stephenson, held at Georgetown Public Library as part of Georgetown Reads. Over FIFTY attended (we had to move to a larger room).

The series continues each of the NEXT THREE WEDNESDAYS. You do not need to have read the book to attend (although I hope you read it at some point).

You can also hear Bryan Stephenson speak - at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin at 7pm on Monday, February 22nd, so I expect the final Wednesday (24th) to include a recap from those who hear him speak (I will go if I find a carpool).

It was obvious that every attendee last night was moved by the conversation with so many bright and like-minded people, as we discussed the state of our criminal justice system, including local government. And most expressed feeling a call to action.

As an introduction to Bryan Stephenson, here is a link to his TED talk:

Recommend One Second After as a complement to World Made by Hand

Hello book friends,
I have just finished our January selection World Made by Hand which I very much look forward to discussing in January.  After you’ve finished it, if you’re looking for more, I recommend One Second After* by William R. Forstchen as a good complement. One Second After addresses life in the IMMEDIATE aftermath (in this case of an electromagnetic pulse), while World Made by Hand represents life 10+ years later. Each book triggered lots of pondering - but about somewhat different things.
*Billie Perkins nominated this book for our club a few years ago but it was not selected.
