National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January since 1970 with the goal of increasing blood and platelet donations during winter – one of the most difficult times of year to collect enough blood products to meet patient needs. During the winter months, inclement weather often results in cancelled blood drives, and seasonal illnesses like the flu may cause some donors to become temporarily unable to donate.
Join our friends at Aurora Public Libraries for a short story reading club! We'll meet once per month in August, September, and October, and each time we'll read and discuss a different short story with APL librarian Chris Grawl.
This is perfect for our friends who'd love to join a book club but worry they don't have the time, or our friends who are already in twenty book clubs and just can't get enough.
We'll have a copy of the story for each attendee, and we'll give you time at the beginning of our gathering to read the short story, so reading it in advance is not required.
In August, we read "Where I'm Calling From" by Raymond Carver. For September, we read "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" by Raymond Carver.
The October story is "Al Roosten" by George Saunders. Stories for future months will be announced later.
Let us know if you'll be there, and please spread the word amongst your literary friends!
