Me2 Orchestra, Planning Meeting June 26 at 7:00pm 

Are you a musician who plays classical music and is interested in erasing the stigma surrounding mental illness? Please join us! Me2/Orchestra (“me, too”) is the world’s only classical music organization created for individuals with mental illnesses and people who support them. We are holding an informational meeting on Monday, June 26, 2017 from 7:00-8:00 pm at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Gwinnett (UUCG): 12 Bethesda Church Rd. Lawrenceville, GA 30044 with the goal of launching a new Me2/ affiliate in the Atlanta, GA metro area. Learn more about the Me2/ organization and the two existing orchestras in Vermont and Massachusetts by visiting the website below. We hope to form an ensemble (or multiple chamber music ensembles) who can begin performing for unconventional audiences in Atlanta in the near future. Please contact Jen Garrison to find out more, and visit www.Me2orchestra.org.

 

UUCG Book Club
Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 7:00PM in the Library
 
At our June meeting the book club will discuss:  My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
 “Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintballgunsatmenwhowant-to-talk-about-Jesus-crazy. She is also Elsa’s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother’s letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.  It is a story about life and death and an ode to one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.”
 
We welcome new members and visitors to join us for our discussions each month, whether you have read or finished the book. Light refreshments will be provided.
