KGC BOOK CLUB:   The first meeting will be held on Monday, October 25 at 1:00 in the Book and Game Room.   Pat Cavalier will lead the discussion on Half Broke Horses, by Jeannette Walls.   This true-life novel is about the author's grandmother, who was born in 1901, in a one-room dugout in West Texas.   By age six, she was helping her father break horses.   At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town -- riding five hundred miles on her Mustang pony, alone, to her job in Arizona.   She learned to drive a car and fly a plane, and, with her husband, ran a vast ranch.   This fascinating story is a journey from the turn of the twentieth century to the post-WWII era.  
    The Round Table purchased a copy of this book, which is being circulated among Book Club members and will be placed in the KGC Library after Oct. 25.   It is also available from the Public Library.   Call Venice Library (861-1330) or Jacaranda Library (861-1260), or request the book online at http://sarac.co.sarasota.fl.us/.   A copy will be transferred from the Gulf Gate Library, where it's on the shelf, to the library of your choice.   Everyone is welcome to attend the Book Club meeting.
            --Sandy McIntyre for Betty Dowling, who is still in Pennsylvania.
