June Meeting

BBBltdRondiDec2012From President Betsy Bitner:

A reminder that our meeting is this Saturday, June 15th at 10:30 am at Blackwood and Brouwer Booksellers (7 Hudson St.) in Kinderhook. PLEASE NOTE this change in location. Next month we will return to our regular location at the Bethlehem Public Library. Rondi will talk to us about independent booksellers and the future of the book selling industry. This should be an interesting and poignant topic. In addition, the 15th is the first day of the 60% off clearance sale, so there should be some good bargains.

The writing prompt for June is:

Nelson Algren was an American writer. He may be best known for The Man with the Golden Arm, a 1949 novel that won the National Book Award and was adapted as a 1955 film of the same name.  Born in 1909, he had three life rules:“Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom’s. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.”

Writing prompt: Write your protagonist’s three life rules.

If you choose to participate in the writing prompt, please come prepared to read it aloud (or have someone read it for you if you’re shy).

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

Betsy
