If you still are not sure what to do with your week might we suggest joining us at Beauties and The Beads which is the title of our next 24/8 Book Club evening out.  The event is going take place at Team Blonde in Forest Park, IL. www.teamblonde.com. Team Blonde is located at 7324 W. Madison.   

Forest Park for those of you that are not familiar is just down the Eisenhower West of the city a short distance, you exit at Harlem and head North the second light is Madison and when you turn left and head west the first light you hit is Circle and you are there.  It is also accessible by the El green and blue lines and the B & NW Geneva line.  Or grab and friend and carpool it over.  Come early and bring your copy of Chicago Magazine to check out why Oak Park/Forest Park were listed as buffed out suburbs among their list of the greatest 2007 picks, http://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/August-2007/Best-of-Chicago-2007/The-Local-Option/index.php?cp=6&si=5

Our distinguised guests for the evening are authors: Stacey Ballis, Laura Caldwell and Cara Lockwood.  They are all contributors to the Judy Blume anthology entitled: Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned From Judy Blume.  It is impossible for any woman to be caught up in this collection of essays without taking a trip down adolescent memories.  Plus these gals are so intelligent, funny and interesting it is just fun to spend the night dishing with them. 

But at a 24/8 event there is always something else amiss. You can have a nail polish change at Team Blonde for $6.00 and they would prefer an RSVP for planning just for this service.  There will be beading if that is something that sparks your interest, you can do it yourself or “The Blondes” can assist. 

So we hope you come out and join us and bring a friend. 24/8 was created for you and to remind everyone to take time our of hectic lives to do something fun and of course remember the magic of reading.  This is one book club where no homework is required. 

If your dance card is taken for Thursday night then remember to sign up at 24/8 to stay in the loop for our upcoming events,  http://www.248bookclub.com/mailing_list/mailing_list.asp   We do not sell or utilize your information for anything else then 24/8 news.
