The Third Friday book group will meet on November 17 at 9:30 a.m. in the conference room. This month's reading selection is a short story of whimsy, Fearless Ivan and His Faithful Horse, Double-Hump. This is a Russian folktale, originally published in 1834, and is said to be comparable to the tales of Hans Christian Andersen. In the recent re-printing by Jack Zipes this story bridges the gap between children and adults. . . and we must know that every literary hero has a wise advisor to guide the way through the story. Tip: read the "afterward" first.
