We welcome you to join us on March 17, 2021 at 7pm via Zoom to discuss the book “The Vanishing Half” by Brit Bennett. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us. 

“The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it’s not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it’s everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters’ storylines intersect?” – Amazon

2021 Virtual Book Club!

We welcome you to join us on Jan 20, 2021 at 7pm via Zoom to discuss the book “Convenience Store Woman” by Sayaka Murata. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.  

“The English-language debut of one of Japan’s most talented contemporary writers, selling over 650,000 copies there, Convenience Store Woman is the heartwarming and surprising story of thirty-six-year-old Tokyo resident Keiko Furukura. Keiko has never fit in, neither in her family, nor in school, but when at the age of eighteen she begins working at the Hiiromachi branch of “Smile Mart,” she finds peace and purpose in her life. In the store, unlike anywhere else, she understands the rules of social interaction―many are laid out line by line in the store’s manual―and she does her best to copy the dress, mannerisms, and speech of her colleagues, playing the part of a “normal” person excellently, more or less. Managers come and go, but Keiko stays at the store for eighteen years. It’s almost hard to tell where the store ends and she begins. Keiko is very happy, but the people close to her, from her family to her coworkers, increasingly pressure her to find a husband, and to start a proper career, prompting her to take desperate action… A brilliant depiction of an unusual psyche and a world hidden from view, Convenience Store Woman is an ironic and sharp-eyed look at contemporary work culture and the pressures to conform, as well as a charming and completely fresh portrait of an unforgettable heroine.” – Amazon

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 7pm via Zoom to discuss the book “The Black Tulip” by Alexandre Dumas, a classic. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“Cornelius von Baerle lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But when his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in a deadly political intrigue. Falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival, Cornelius is condemned to life in prison. His only comfort is Rosa, the jailer’s beautiful daughter, who helps him concoct a plan to grow the black tulip in secret. As Robin Buss explains in his informative introduction, Dumas infuses his story with elements from the history of the Dutch Republic (including two brutal murders) and Holland’s seventeenth-century ‘tulipmania’ phenomenon” – Amazon Sound interesting?

We welcome you to join the book club on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 7pm via ZOOM to discuss the book “Educated” by Tara Westover. This is an open event for residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.” – Amazon.

We welcome you to join the book club on Wednesday, July 15, 2020 at 7pm via ZOOM to discuss the book “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. This is an open event for residents & their guests who would like to join us.

“For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.” – Amazon

Mask Coverings

Stemming from Governor Newsom and The California Department of Public Health’s requirement that all Californians wear a face covering while outside of their home (i.e. in areas where they may interact with non-household members), the Board of Directors passed a resolution requiring all residents to wear a face covering.

This emergency rule will be in effect until October 19, 2020 (unless rescinded sooner or extended via formal rule adoption).

Emergency Rule: “Residents are required to wear face coverings at all times when in the Common Areas of the Project, including hallways, stairways, elevators, etc.”
