1.19.15 Update

The RMFW loop announced Thursday that our own Daven Anderson will be having a book signing at the 2nd & Charles bookstore in Aurora.  Daven’s book, Vampire Syndrome Saga, has been a treat for many of us to read with a down syndrome hero, Jack, learning to survive as a vampire.  Thanks to Kevin Wolf for this update.

ZJ Czopor sent the following links for general review and reflection.  Anyone interested in hosting a discussion of these on Thursday before group?
