NEW SEASON WITH DUCKWORTH’S BISTROT AND LIT HOUSE BOOK CLUB EVENTS

Chef Ken Duckworth out did himself in the fabulous and delicious department!

Jenn did an outstanding job leading the discussion last night at The Great Gatsby book club event. A mandatory high school English class read for many, nonetheless, it was very enjoyable to read again, and especially interesting in light of our current political climate.

EASTERN POINT LIT HOUSE AND DUCKWORTH’S BOOK CLUB CELEBRATE THREE YEARS OF GREAT BOOKS AND WONDERFUL DINNERS!

Eastern Point Lit House Duckworths -3 kim SmithEastern Point Lit House co-founder Chris Anderson led a heartfelt discussion on To Kill a Mockingbird, his favorite book, as it is for so many. I hadn’t read the book since junior high school and wholeheartedly recommend that if you haven’t in a long while, do. Although I’ve seen the movie several times since and know the outcome, I couldn’t put the book down and did something I haven’t been compelled to do in some time, which is to stay up and read a book in one night. The themes beautifully explored and woven throughout this literary classic, of racism, social inequality, ignorance, coming of age, good versus evil, raising children in a community (no matter how flawed), bravery, and injustice are as relevant today as when the book was first published in 1960. The masterful story telling by Harper Lee leaves you with a deep sense of hope and compassion for your fellow human.

                                    * * *

On June 26th, author Julia Glass is leading the discussion on the graphic novel Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. For more information and the complete 2016 Book Club Schedule visit the Eastern Point Lit House website here.

Joe Scarborough Does The Unthinkable And Tells Hillary Clinton To Smile

(Salon)I only described MSNBC host Joe Scarborough’s subtweet of Hillary Clinton as annoying to keep the trolls out. But let’s be honest, it’s subversively sexist. Call it casual sexism, call it ever day sexism, call whatever you’d like, but it’s flippant, cavalier and annoying at best and sexist in all likelihood.

Have you ever been accused of not smiling and does it drive you up a wall?

(Mashable)At this point, men have to know better than to tell a woman to smile. Hillary Clinton had an incredible night during Tuesday’s primaries, locking down Florida and sealing a surprise win in Ohio. But Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, thought she could have acted, like, a little happier about it.

Snoring solutions- involves a sleep study- cpap machine- at that point dont you just have the person go into another bedroom?

LEADEN DECEMBER SKIES :)

How fortunate we are to be experiencing a delightfully warm El Nino December although many regions in the rest of the country are not faring as well as we in the Northeast. Thinking about where we were almost to the date a year ago at this time…see the end of this post.
