- Vic asked about inviting another member, David, local businessman. It was agreed that another member would be welcome. Mary also to invite Robyn as discussed a couple of meetings ago.
- Only 3 people gave a score for Mao’s Last Dancer. We agreed that votes can be forwarded prior to the next meeting for inclusion in the final score by those still reading the book.
Discussion : True-to-form-and not-to-disapoint-us Trish had not read Mao’s Last Dancer despite having completed her PhD thesis a week ago but did a bit of research into Li Cunxin and kicked off the discussion nicely. Those who had managed to finish the book had enjoyed it, finding the social and political aspects interesting. The score on the night was 3.
