"The Eight" Book Discussion at the World Chess Hall of Fame

Hola everyone.

Things are very busy here and I have been neglecting the blogs yet again. Sorry, I will try to do better but for at least the next few months but I don't see a change coming back to what used to be my normal life for some time yet.  I will have zero readers by the time that happens - assuming it does happen.

But I want to let you know about this, because I LOVE "THE EIGHT" -- reading this book, written by Katherine Neville, back in the 1980s literally changed my life.  In fact, I love this book SO much, I am seriously tempted to fly down to St. Louis and attend this book discussion at the World Chess Hall of Fame.  I could use a get-away before visiting my Goddesschess cohort Isis in Las Vegas later in May.  Dealing with delicate family matters and five younger siblings is, well - stressful.

It is scheduled for May 4, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the WCHOF building directly across from the building popularly called the St. Louis Chess Club, hosted by he Alternative Book Group.

The Eight is a tale of power, conspiracy and revenge, set in motion by a fortune-teller, a mysterious offer, and the quest for the Montglane Chess Service once owned by Charlemagne. Join us for a discussion of this post-modern thriller set in eighteenth century France and twentieth century Algiers. Enjoy activities and snacks inspired by the book and the many creative avenues that reading takes us down!
