Our annual meeting took place this past weekend in Earlville, Iowa. Sixteen people were in attendance. We started off at the Earlville Public Library, which is also known as the Ruth Suckow Memorial Library. One of the things that I love about this place is the back corner, which has a display of Ruth's books and photos. After our business meeting, we went over to a nearby church for lunch, where we discussed the book (Odyssey of a Nice Girl) and visited with our essay contest winner, Karen Neubauer.
