Moving Right Along

Although we're excited for their new opportunities, we are NOT excited that two Bluestockings have moved away. Angie and Mary Ann, the Bluestocking Society will never be the same.

The Circle

The Circle has an interesting premise and so much food for thought! It seemed like everything we talked about, even after our book discussion ended, related to this book!

Thanks, Chanon, for our circular evening!

A First

The first fella to ever be invited to meet with the Bluestockings...and he was so well behaved!


Thanks, KB, for the summery meal with a table to match (plus snack mix!).

Bluestocking Retreat 2015

Last year's retreat report could have been written for the 2015 trip! There was one small change; this year we watched The Great Santini as a follow-up to our January and February reads.

Our visit to G.J. Ford gave us ideas for new reads and confirmed some that we had already considered. Our reading list for the year is set and we can't wait to read and discuss our choices!
