The following e-mail announcement was sent by John Childs to the Book Group mailing list:
Dear Book Group Members,
This is a reminder that our next meeting will be the fourth Sunday, January 26th, 2014. As usual we won't meet in December in deference to the busy Holiday Season and the SHL Solstice Potluck: Dec 15, 2013 / 5:00 PM
We selected our book for January at the November Book Group meeting deciding on Greta Christina's, "Why Are You Atheists So Angry, 99 Things That Piss Off the Godless". Greta is also the guest speaker for the regular SHL meeting at Gage Hall on the 3rd Sunday of January. Below is a brief description of the book and keep in mind that if you purchase it through Amazon and mention SHL we get a credit. You can read a longer review at the Amazon purchase site.
"Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry--and are ready to do something about it?

As always, we look forward to seeing you all there for an intense review of the book.
If you have book suggestions please E-Mail Barbara (email@example.com) or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will add them to our existing list for future reference. At the January meeting we will have copies of books that have scored high for consideration for the February book. Selections are arrived at democratically by the attendees but, keep in mind that all are welcome and encouraged to attend regardless of reading the book or not.
John and Barbara Childs
