“The next meeting will be the FIRST Tuesday of November, November 3rd.  The reason for the date change is that we will be having a special guest.

The book for the November meeting is Everest: Alone at the Summit. The library has several copies available for check-out to AAC and FOL members, and Museum’s  Basecamp giftshop has copies available for purchase.

Everest: Alone at the Summit(US Edition)( ·  ISBN-10: 1560252898  ISBN-13: 978-1560252894) or Everest: Kangshung Face (UK edition) (ISBN: 9780340423660).

Feel free to bring your friends to the next Book club meeting!  Please RSVP so we know how many people are coming.  RSVP to aacbookclub [at] gmail [dot] com

The December book will be Annapurna by Maurice Herzog, and there will be related ephemera from a private collection to look at.

The last discussion was really great, funny and interesting discussing the different ways people had read and interpreted “The Fall.” A very entertaining book.

Look forward to seeing everyone November 3rd at the next meeting.”
