THE “NO STRINGS ATTACHED BOOK CLUB” SPONSORED BY THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PTOS "The Night Watchman" by Louise Erodrich “Through...small, personal rituals of purpose and accomplishment, we are given the opportunity to care about and relate to the characters ... Woven into the routines of life on the reservation is the thread of mysticism ... It is with great care for the world around them that these characters appreciate and even revere what can be known but not seen or heard ... This is the story of lives in the midst of struggle, efforts carried out within the borders, both physical and societal, of a circumscribed space. What makes reading this book such a satisfying experience is learning about the everyday pleasures, the successes, big and small, and the many ways they make meaning of their lives.” (Lorna Kearne. Pittsburgh Post Gazette) https://cwms-wb4-app101.uspto.gov/orion/joinmeeting.do?MTID=3545990730b84a780c2a99d857bd635a&siteurl=meetings Meeting Number: 992 466 406 Meeting Password: 388239 Tuesday, October 5, 2021, 4:30-5:30 PM (ET) LYNN BRISTOL: LYNN.BRISTOL@USPTO.GOV (PTOS) Interested in joining the PTOS?
