Please join us for a discussion of The Only Woman in the Room by Marie Benedict, a fictionalized account of the life of the Hollywood film star and legendary beauty Hedy Lamarr. The novel homes in not on Lamarr the movie star, but on Lamarr the co-inventor of a “frequency-hopping” radio communication technology that distantly prefigured WiFi.  Bet you didn’t know that!  In celebration of the Novel NNORC Book Club’s first anniversary, we’ll reflect on Year One and debate the “hits” and “misses.” We also want to know what beverage you reach for when you settle into a cozy chair and crack open a book — a glass of silky red wine or a warm cup of chamomile tea. New members welcome!

Save Monday, December 28th for the next Novel NNORC book club meeting. Title to be announced in the December NNORC News.

NNORC has embraced Zoom (online video and audio conferencing) so we can continue to offer you programs. If you prefer not to use a computer or smartphone to participate, all you need is a telephone line to join in. 

Please call 518-514-2023 or email us at NNORC@jfsneny.org to sign up for a program. We will give you an access link or phone number for you to participate. You can also contact us for a one-on-one Zoom tutorial. We look forward to seeing you or hearing from you!
