East and West Book Club meeting

Minutes by Eric

Time: Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Place: Yang’s home

Participants: Yang, Lishan, Tracy, Eric, Ellen, Sierra

Book: Miss Manners’ Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior


Read pages 58-61 in the Basic Civilization Concerning Children chapter, and discussed topics of “Important Interruptions”, “The Children Who Came to Dinner”, “Secret”, “Privacy”, “A Civil Native Tongue”,”Double Insults”, “Condescension”, and “Being Kind to Creeps”. Each topic is about half a page. We talked about how some things are important to tell the adult and some not, so as child you need to think before you speak. Don’t try to see other people’s privacy and be more mature, that is when adults will treat you like an adult.
