Also at this meeting: If you've borrowed one of the books we made available a few weeks ago, we'd love to hear your thoughts about it. There are still a few available, including a couple copies of The Sun Does Shine, by Anthony Ray Hinton, which I can't recommend highly enough. Hope to see you Sunday!
