Book Discussion February: Chinese new year

Post  aurelie on Fri Feb 01, 2008 11:02 am

Hi everyone,

I'm organizing the first book discussion.

What is it? We will meet in small group at the library and talk about a theme (Chinese New year) with the help of some simple books with pictures. Its more like a discovery meeting about Chinese New Year. Everyone will bring a book they have read and will exchange 5 things that they've learned by reading the book. Its simple English conversation on a subject illustrated by the books you bring.

For this meeting:
Level of book: Very easy, children book, illustrated (you can find nice books in the Children section of the Carnegie Main Library)
The theme will be: Chinese New Year
Where: Carnegie Main library Oakland
When: Wednesday 6th February 10am -...whenever you have to go
Bring: a book and write the 5 things you learned in the book

For more information click on MP to contact me or just reply to this post.
Chinese Taiwanese are most welcome to talk about their personal vision of Chinese New Year.

Here is the book I chose:



See you soon!

I am not done yet with the email for the ski tomorrow… It seems to be simple to send email but…

Since we had more than 100 recipients, Yahoo doesn’t allow me to sent in BCC (blind copy) to more than 100 people within 2h, sometime longer… I cut the member list into 3 and have been trying every hour for hours now… It’s making me crazy. shake

Meanwhile, I’m receiving failure notices (incorrect address) and no delivery notices (anti-spam system)… wall

We will talk about that in another topic.

Hi Aurelie,

I am so sorry that you were alone at our first meeting Crying or Very sad
Did you get my message through MP?
I am so interested in this book club and if my poor English is not big problem, I hope I could be a member of this club.
I think we can discuss about it more.
