September 2021 Newsletter

We hope you and your families had a nice break and this message will find you well. We want to kick off this new season with an in-person welcome back party. Please do not forget to RSVP. The LNN board is actively discussing activities for the coming months, and also remains committed to the safety of our members and our community.

Book Club
Thursday, September 23 at 7pm

Please join us for a lively discussion of Matt Haig’s New York Times bestseller The Midnight Library. 

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. 

In The Midnight Library, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

RSVP by September 22 to Please note this is a new email. Once you rsvp, you will receive the address of our in-person meeting the day before the meeting.
