Planning for the 2019-20 season are the following has begun!  Please note that all dates and events are tentative at this point.


  • The November 6 and December 4, 2019 and the February 5, March 4 and April 1, 2020 board meetings and the book club meetings that follow will take place on the first Wednesday of each month.
  • The January meeting will take place on the second Wednesday, January 8, 2020, because the first Wednesday is New Year’s Day.
  • The first book of the Season (November 6, 2019) will be Daughter of Moloka'i by Alan Brennert.  (Please see separate article.)


  • November 14, 2019:  Evening wine and cheese get-together will be held at the home of Gail Rothenberg.   We hope that an evening event, rather than a morning coffee, will allow more members to attend than in the past.


  • January 2020:  Tour of the newly renovated and reopened (as of November 2019) Baker Museum in Naples. Jane Lahey will chair this event.
  • February 2020:  Presentation by author
  • February 2020:  Tour of the Everglades Wonder Garden in Bonita Springs.  Nancy Morrill will chair this event, which will be followed either by high tea at the site or a luncheon offsite.
  • March 8, 2020:  “Gypsy” at the TheatreZone.  Sunday matinee will be preceded by brunch at the Country Club of Naples.
  • March 28, 2020:  Annual meeting and luncheon.  A Wellesley professor will talk about a subject of timely interest.  More details to follow.
