Upcoming Members' Salon Series Starts With Spinning Off Spinoza

Here's an important date for your diary. The next members' salon takes place on Thursday 6th of December at 7.30pm and the evening revolves around the life and times of 17th Century lens grinder and philosopher, Baruch Spinoza. It's worth doing all you can to make it to this salon as it sets up the 5 subsequent salons in our 2013 series...Quite apart from that, Spinoza is a pretty fascinating thinker and you won't want to go through this holiday season without his thoughts on joy (and sorrow) very much on your mind. To find out more about becoming a member of wwp and attending our monthly salons please visit our website.

Remembering Margaret 'Magee' Bremner (Wallace)

Our thoughts go out at this time to wwp members Wendy and Heather, and their sister Val, who lost their 'big' sister, Magee, on Saturday, November 17. Though we never met Magee personally, she was very much part of our collective wwp story: brought vividly to life by Wendy, Heather and Val when they participated in a book and film club weekend up at the Nurtury which Magee had hoped to attend along with them; exchanging ideas with us about a scrap-booking weekend that Magee was keen to put on at the Nurtury. We have been so moved by the sisters' love for and care of Magee during the past half year, and we send our deepest condolences to them and their family.
