This month I am fortunate enough to introduce two Guest Group Facilitators to our Morro Bay Book Discussion Group. Veda Freedman has been a long time participant with us who especially loves mysteries. She will beVeda Freedman leading the discussion on March 8. Cindy FarrowCindy Farrow who joined our group last year will be leading the discussion on March 15. We are so fortunate to have such a dynamic group of enthusiastic, educated, motivated and articulate participants as part of our Morro Bay Library's Morro Bay Book Discussion Group. Yes, I am talking about you. If you haven't joined us yet or it has been awhile since your last visit....always know the door is open to you. We believe in the powerful and unique perspective you have and will bring to the discussion. If you think you might want to be a Guest Group Facilitator at some point, please contact me.

Tina Fey
And no....she is not our next Guest Group Facilitator. On Wednesday, March 15, according to our Winter Series booklist we were scheduled to read and discuss, "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman. Unfortunately, the book will not be available for us to discuss because the library holds are still overwhelming. Therefore, we will be reading and discussing a different book on that date. Click on the picture of this lovely lady above - recognize her yet? -  for a hint. More details below.
