BCA December 3 Meeting with acclaimed writer Alice McDermott

This is to remind you of tomorrow's Bannockburn Citizens Association meeting, Thursday, December 3 at 7:30 PM at St. Mark. Please join us. This is a meeting not to be missed.

This will be our year-end meeting featuring holiday cheer with eggnog, coffee and cookies. We particularly would like to welcome our new neighbors.

Our featured speaker will be Bannockburn neighbor Alice McDermott, one of America's most acclaimed writers. She won the National Book Award in 1998 for "Charming Billy," the tale of an Irish-American community mourning a lovable but tragic rogue. Her 1987 novel "That Night," was a finalist for the Pen/Faulkner Award and the Pulitzer Prize, and a film version was produced by Warner Bros. in 1992. "At Weddings and Wakes" (1992) became a New York Times bestseller and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her 2013 novel "Someone," about a woman living in Brooklyn around the time of World War II, was a finalist for the National Book Award for fiction. We very much look forward to Judith's remarks.

As always, the meeting will be an opportunity to visit with your neighbors, discuss BCA activities, hear reports from our Committees, and pass along news and comments.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow. .

Best Wishes,
Ted Garrett,
BCA President
