Are you a reader? Do you have a seemingly unending bank of books that you keep meaning to read but never seem to get around to it? Do you enjoy intelligent conversation with people the things you read? If you said â€œyesâ€ to any of these, the Writing Lounge Book Club invites you to join us the second Wednesday of each month as we discuss a new and interesting selection! Our Wednesday, April 11 meeting will examine Stephen Hawkingâ€™s classic A Brief History of Time. Does time always flow forward? Can we find boundaries to the universe, or is it unending? Are there other dimensions in space? What will happen when it all ends? Find out this and more in this monthâ€™s selection, then weigh in with your thoughts at our book discussion on April 11!

And that does not shine true anywhere more than in the tavern portion of the inn, where dozens upon dozens of men and women all crowd together around the tavern tables. They are all either playing Argus or observing those who do, letting out loud cheers for impressive moves or playful jeers at the losers. It was as if the men and women were all one big family having a family night.
