Adam Schiff Book Club – Exciting News and More

We got some exciting news about the book club this week.  Adam Schiff plans to join us for the first 30 minutes of – not just one, but two – meetings.

Are you guys are as excited as I am?

🐇

Details are in the sidebar for easy access: Midnight In Washington Book Club

I will put up a post tomorrow so we can start gathering possible questions we might want to ask Adam Schiff AND so everyone has the opportunity to share any thoughts about how we might want to approach each of the 4 themes in our discussions.  (Start thinking now so you can join the discussion tomorrow!)

Theme 1.  Discussion of the book more generally, no specific theme

Theme 2.  January 6:  The Insurrection – The Revolution Really Was Televised!

Theme 3.  What Didn’t You Know Before You Read the Book?  What Surprised You?

Theme 4.  So Many Shocking Betrayals, On So Many Fronts.

Theme 5.  We’re Not Helpless Passengers On a Bad Ride – Making Our Own Shade.

Themes 2 and 5 are listed in color because these are the topics we will be discussing on the evenings when Adam Schiff joins us:  Theme 2 at his first meeting with us, and Theme 5 at his second meeting with us.

Important Housekeeping Requests:

  • If you had signed up for the book club but you have changed your mind, please let me know in the comments below or by email.
  • I will need to communicate with all of the participants by email.  So everyone please send me an email with adam schiff, book club, or midnight in washington in the title.
  • In your email message, let me know whether you plan to attend by zoom or if you plan to participate only through the BJ book club posts.

PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NYM IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR EMAIL MESSAGES – IN MANY CASES I KNOW THE NYM-NAME CONNECTION, BUT WITH 120 PARTICIPANTS, IT’S REALLY HELPFUL IF YOU INCLUDE YOUR NYM!
