The West Ocean Travel Club begins its 3rd year on Monday September 9, featuring South Africa. The presentation by Bonita Stewart will be in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room at 7, preceded at 6:30 by an optional potluck dinner.
From our presenter: My trip to South Africa kept its promise of sheer delight with wide-open spaces, a wealth of wildlife, game parks of outstanding natural beauty, coastal paradise, breathtaking landscapes, mountainous regions with unlimited hiking possibilities, and incredible ethnic diversity which is a source of an outstanding artistic vitality.
During my presentation I will highlight the beauty of southern Africa by giving a first-hand account of my experience and showing pictures of each location. I will start in the metropolitan coastal city of Cape Town, followed by Durban and the country of Swaziland, ending in Johannesburg, the financial capital of South Africa. Lastly, I will talk about the cultural experience I had and give my perspective as an African American traveling to South Africa.
We welcome all of our old members back and look forward to meeting new West Ocean residents who love to travel!
We welcome you to join us on Wednesday August 21,2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “The Plot Against America” by Philip Roth (Moderator: Suman). This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.
“In an astonishing feat of narrative invention, our most ambitious novelist imagines an alternate version of American history. In 1940 Charles A. Lindbergh, heroic aviator and rabid isolationist, is elected President. Shortly thereafter, he negotiates a cordial “understanding” with Adolf Hitler, while the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy growing up in Newark, Lindbergh’s election is the first in a series of ruptures that threatens to destroy his small, safe corner of America- and with it, his mother, his father, and his older brother.”- Amazon

We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, July 17th, 2019 at 7pm in the Tower 2 Multi-Purpose Room to discuss the book “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean. This is an open invite for the residents & their guests who would like to join us.
“On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Library. As the moment’s passes, the patrons and staff who had been cleared out of the building realized this was not the usual fire alarm. As the fireman recounted, “Once that first stack got going, it was Goodbye Charlie.” The fire was disastrous: it reached 2000 degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand more. Investigators descended on scene, but more than thirty years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library-and if so, who?” – Amazon
