The next meeting of our group will be Thursday, May 6th at 4PM in the Anna Many Lounge of NCCROW (Rm. 206 Caroline Richardson Building).

We will read Lindy Boggs’ memoir, Washington Through a Purple Veil, and Tania Tetlow’s essay, “Lindy and Me”. The book is out of print, so Peg at the Tulane bookstore can’t get it for us, but used copies of it are available for a penny through Amazon.com.  Copies are also available at the Vorhoff Library in the Caroline Richardson Building.
