Our Fairfax book club has met twice, most recently on Dec. 14, when 21 of us (!) from 5 W & M decades broke into smaller groups and discussed A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Have you ever thought of the parallels with How the Grinch Stole Christmas?? Thanks to Anne Sharp ’82 for volunteering to lead this club and our book discussions!
Our next Fairfax book club at Kilroy's Restaurant will be Wed., Jan. 11, 7:30-9pm. Kilroy’s Restaurant is just off the Beltway at the Braddock Road West exit in the Ravensworth Shopping Center, 5250-A Port Royal Rd., Springfield: http://kilroys.com/k16-index.htm.
The owner of Kilroy’s is Philip “Pip” Thomas ’69! He has kindly offered us space at the restaurant monthly for our book club meeting. When you arrive, just ask for the W & M book club. If you’d like to go earlier for dinner, please feel free. I’m sure we’ll share some wine, etc. while we talk about books, so please bring some cash, to make it easier to split the bill.
You get to choose which of these 2 books to read: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald OR Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. Remember to bring your book with you to the meeting.
