Snow just makes the holiday season, doesn’t it?  We are decked out in our purple glory, and would love to help you find some treasures for gift-giving and winter solstice.  Dede Moore’s rug bazaar opens this evening, now!, complete with powerpoint presentation, so come see us.  Feels like old times.

A441: Anonymous notes

This book might have been published in the 1930's or 40's. It is about a woman (maybe a shut-in?) who anonymously writes kind and wonderful notes and maybe sends small unexpected gifts to people who are sad or maybe shut-in themselves. Her notes and gifts bring great joy to the recipients.

Classics Club
Description: D:\Harriett\Documents\WEBSITES\www-Loganberry\wuthering.jpgEmily Bronte: Wuthering Heights
Thursday, December 16, 7 pm
**Please note this is the fifth Thursday of December, rather than the usual fourth Thursday!**

Wuthering Heights was the only novel by Emily Bronte, and remains one of the masterpieces of the 19th century. Perhaps you read it in high school?  Or perhaps you only skimmed through the Cliff Notes?  Either way, it is time to revisit Heathcliff and Catherine, the romantic and terrifying moors, and this star-crossed love affair.  Some classics have a way of infiltrating into our lives in subtle and mysterious ways, and I think you’ll find some resonances with this old classic.  Join us as we discuss Wuthering Heights the week just following Christmas.  You’ll be itching to get out to the moors by then anyway.
