Several NCF members have expressed interest in trying to form a “gay book club” to meet once a month or so. We have set SEPT 27, 6:30 p.m. for our first meeting, which will be at church for an hour or so. The book we’ll discuss is a David Sedaris collection of humorous semi-autobiographical essays “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls.”
Some of you may have read one of the earlier humor books by Sedaris, a gay author who has written “Santaland Diaries," "Me Talk Pretty Some Day, "Naked" and several others. This Owls book is available at most branches of the Volusia County library. Also Tom Brown has ordered a few used copies, which will cost $4 apiece for softcover, $5 for hardcover. Those who prefer brand new copies can go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or other sites, or call your favorite bookstore. You can find reviews of Owls at Goodreads.com -- its overall rating is 3.8 out of 4 stars.
