"I'll get around to reading that someday..."

How about today? Join the new book club Getting Around to It and tackle all those books you've stored away for a rainy day. We'll be reading titles that are classic (both modern and old), prize winners and college classroom standards. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, September 24 at 2PM, where we will discuss Candide by Voltaire. One of the most famous satirical novels, Voltaire merrily lampoons the philosophy of optimism with the misadventures of his young protagonist. There are copies available in the lobby.
