Some big changes are happening to the leadership of the club. The two founders, Celeste and myself, have both independently, coincidentally, decided to take an indefinite leave from the club.
We have both lost major concentration due to different life reasons. Mine brought on by my pregnancy, which have coupled with my waning interest in reading new books that didn’t specifically come from my to-read lists.
We have nominated the two most senior members, who are both at most every meeting, and read almost every single book. Stephanie & Linda have both agreed to take on the responsibility together. Stephanie has been with the club since October 2013 is already a club admin. Linda has been a member since October 2014. They will resume all admin responsibilities going forward, and including our next meeting on January 29th.
Celeste and I are very sorry to go. And we both hope to return once we get ourselves back in order. For us both, this is indefinitely, as neither of us knows how long this might take.
If you have any future questions regarding the bookclub, club decisions, issues, etc. you can speak to either Stephanie or Linda who have been debriefed in all club structure & business.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. –F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby (1925)
