Swing by Half Price Books, pick up a cheap paperback copy of one (or two) of your favorite books, and bring it (them) to our next meeting on Thursday, March 21st at 2:15pm in B275 for an old-fashioned book swap. Fingers crossed, Professor Schulze will figure out how to get a couple of pizzas to the meeting as well. See you!

I like a Girl Who Reads
On Tuesday, December 3rd, the ECC Literary Circle will close out the term on an international note. At 6pm, we’ll converge at Paciugo for gelato before heading to the 7:30pm showing of Fellini’s classic film, 8 1/2 at the Magnolia (both places are in the West Village off Lemmon and 75). Come for one or both events. You are responsible* for your own travel, tickets, and gelato - but know that there is a convenient CityPlace DART station near the West Village. More info about the Magnolia (showtimes, ticket prices, etc.)can be found here.
*If you’re just dying to go, but can’t fit a movie ticket into your budget, let Ms. Schulze know, and she’ll try to work something out with you.
