Start Your Summer with TWM

With all this talk of the summer starting and all the fun things folks are planning, we wanted to remind you of a couple of TWM events coming up this month.

We already told you about the first book in TWM's summer book club, The Twentieth Wife, and the corresponding meet-up on June 17th. Hopefully you've kept up with the reading and will be able to make it!

What TWM has also got planned is an event exploring the people and culture of Zimbabwe on June 23rd. Here's the info:
