May Meeting

Thanks to all who attended the April meeting, where we read part 5 of “The Natural”.

We had a lively discussion about the ending of this part: why does the lady in red leave the stadium so quickly? Why do the other fans leave, too? Which fans? The Knights’ fans, because they assume their team has lost? Or the opposing team’s fans because they assume THEY have lost?


Our next meeting will be May 30th, when we will read part 6.

April meeting – The Natural, part 5

Hi, everyone,

A reminder that our next IRG meeting will be next Wednesday April 25th at the usual time of 3:15

We will read Part 5. In this part, Roy’s batting slump gets worse, until he meets a mysterious dark-haired lady in a red dress.

(BTW, do you know the song “Lady in Red” by Chris de Burgh?

See it here:

It’s a great love song for Chris’ wife, but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to repair the relationship between them: she divorced him soon after!)

And what is “The Fairy Wood”? A while back, some of you enjoyed reading an earlier story from the Words of Peace website called All in Good Time about a fig tree, so perhaps you will enjoy The Fairy Wood, too, a personal reminiscence of a beautiful childhood memory.

See you Wednesday. Peace.
