Book Chamber

bookchamber

Join the Book Chamber at 6:30 on December 19 (the 3rd Tuesday) for Christmas cookies and New Year’s inspiration, discussing When Breath Becomes Air by  Paul Kalanthi. A scholar of literature (Stanford) and philosophy (Cambridge) before studying neurosurgery (Yale), Dr. Kalanthi pens his  life’s anecdotes rich in experience, conversation, and friendship remembered after viewing the CT scan of his own, cancer-assaulted body.  “Whoa, there”, you say?  “This is a holiday book choice?”  “None better,”  I assure you, “for its warmth, insight and expression of humankind’s LIFE.

You that seek what life is in death, 
Now find it air that once was breath. 
New names unknown, old names gone: 
Till time end bodies, but souls none.
            Reader! then make time, while you be,
            But steps to your eternity.
(from Caelica 83, Baron Brooke Fulke Grevelle, 1633)

 


knittingMonday Knitters

Calling all generous and talented Ebell members and friends who can knit or crochet, want to learn how, want to show their support or just want to schmooze!  We meet to make blankets, scarves, and hats for Helen’s Room which offers support and products to women cancer patients free of charge. As our circle of knitters and crocheters enlarges, our Helen’s Room survivors are surrounded by the love and support of many more women. Skeins of yarn are always needed.
The Social Service Department is always looking for woman power and ideas. If you know how we can further support the Rest Cottage Association charities, please contact Cynthia Comskycyncom@mac.com; Janna Bodek Harrisjannabodekharris@icloud.com
