February 2, 9:00 a.m.
Books & Bites will not meet in January, but will return on Sunday, February 2 at 9 a.m. The February book choice is the historical novel Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. The author was a featured speaker last year for the Buffalo Babel series. Pachinko was a National Book Award Finalist. It is an epic saga that begins in the early 1900's and follows four generations of a Korean family as they face the challenges of life first under the Japanese occupation of Korea and later as unwanted immigrants in Japan.
Books & Bites provides a forum for people to discuss a book that they have read together. Although some of the discussion is book specific, questions that address broader themes provide an entry point for participation by those who were simply curious or who had been unable to read that month's selection.
February 2, 2:00 p.m.

Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
