    The a2b3 lunch group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/a2b3/) would LOVE to have you join us for lunch some Thursday. We (or at least some subgroup of us) meet every Thursday at Eastern Accents, which is just south of you on Fourth Street. We have a “question of the week” every week, and it’s frequently about books. Earlier today, we talked about the books we were either currently writing or thinking about writing.
