Sunday, February 17 - Shadow Divers
Hello!! We had such an interesting discussion about Hemingway, the man, and his book, "For Whom the Bell Tolls." Our next meeting will be on Sunday, February 17. I have been able to reserve the library kit for , "Shadow Divers," by Robert Kurson, the true story of two wreckage divers who discover a sunken World War II German U-Boat 60 miles off the coast of New Jersey. Because there are no visual markings, a group of determined divers delve into the mystery of how the boat came to be there. There are human skeletons inside among tangled metal and wires, so the story is most intriguing!!
Because we are only allowed to reserve a kit for 8 weeks, I will have the books available on Sunday, December 17. There are several copies available.
Take care, and stay safe!! Suzanne
From Deacon Dot:
Good news everyone. I have been in touch with my brother and he very quickly agreed to visit us on February 17 to share with us his adventures as a diver. He will be bringing a colleague with him as well as some artifacts from their dives. I can promise you a good time. Once he gets started talking about diving, there is no stopping him. I told him we usually end between 12:30 and 1:00 but he could run over if necessary. He said “it will run over”!!
Because there is no telling when it will end, I will be ordering lunch (sandwiches).
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 17th.
