Beginning our 23rd year of the First Friday Book Synopsis

We are planning to begin our 23rd. year of the First Friday Book Synopsis on April 3.

But, I wanted to share these important thoughts, related ot the current circumstances, here on my blog:


Yesterday, Dallas County announced its emergency coronavirus-related guidelines. All gatherings over 500 people must be cancelled, and all gatherings over 250 people should be cancelled. Our event averages 85-100 people, and our highest attendance has been under 150.

The other part of the recommendation is that people over 60 years of age should consider not attending any gatherings over 10 people. We do have a few people who regularly attend who are age 60 or older. (Including…me).

I have decided, at this point, to still hold our event. But, I will be watching the local news carefully, as we all are. And, if the circumstances change, we will act accordingly.

I have met with the management team of the Park City Club, and I am fully confident that they are taking all extra precautions during this health-conscious time. Of course, the First Friday Book Synopsis team will also take the same level of precaution.

If you purchase a ticket for our April event, and we end up not holding the event, or you decide you feel unwell and do not attend, I will issue a credit for a future session.

My personal thought: I want to be fully cooperative, and follow the guidelines put in place. By doing so, we can hope that life will return to normal soon.

And, let’s remember those who are ill, and those who have lost their lives, and keep their families in our thoughts. May God be with them; and with us all.
