Barely a Book Club

Teetering on the edge of a normal book club

6/23 – Book Club Movie Night June 19, 2006

Filed under: Picture of Dorian Gray — antof9 @ 4:55 pm

This is it! What we have been talking about doing for months.
Book Club Movie Night!

We will be meeting on Friday at 6:30 at my house. After making our own pizzas we will finish up Dorian Gray followed by the 1945 version of The Picture of Dorian Gray, which seems to be the most critically acclaimed adaptation of the book.

We do need some volunteers for pizza toppings, so if you could reply to all or post what you would like to bring that would be great. Plan for about 8 and if you don't know how many just ask! Also it's totally byoa (bring your own anchovies.) I will provide all the meat.

Pizza Bread – small Boboli pre-cooked pizza bread maybe 2 people could bring those to spread out the costs

Tomatoes (canned or fresh)
Green Peppers
Mushrooms (canned or fresh)
Black Olives
Pineapples (canned)
Any other cheese that looks good.
For everyone who didn't get a chance to read the book this is a great opportunity to catch up on the story.

Hope to see you there.

My address:
2653 S. Wolff Way
One block east of Sheridan off of Yale. Feel free to park in the circle or lower driveway.


BC 6/17 – Dorian Gray+Tea= FUN! June 12, 2006

One question…why not meet at a park when the sunburn twins were NOT present? Actually the park was very nice, thanks for finding it.

We did discuss TPoDG…
 – How thick does Wilde's own orientation premeate the book, or is it all cultural?
 – Wilde's interesting writing style.

Next week we are meeting at 10:30 at the House of Commons for tea! That's what happens when bc is all girls. Read up to Chapter 14.
