From internationally bestselling author Isabel Allende comes an exquisitely crafted, multigenerational love story. In 1939, as Poland falls under the shadow of the Nazis and the world goes to war, young Alma Belasco’s parents send her overseas to live with an aunt and uncle in their opulent San Francisco mansion. There she meets Ichimei Fukuda, the son of the family’s Japanese gardener, and between them a tender love blossoms, but following Pearl Harbor the two are cruelly pulled apart.

Throughout their lifetimes, Alma and Ichimei reunite again and again, but theirs is a love they are forever forced to hide from the world. Decades later, Alma is nearing the end of her long and eventful life. Irina Bazili, a care worker struggling to reconcile her own troubled past, meets the older woman and her grandson, Seth, at Lark House nursing home. As Irina and Seth forge a friendship, they become intrigued by a series of mysterious gifts and letters sent to Alma, and learn about Ichimei and this extraordinary secret passion that has endured for nearly seventy years.

Reminder: AGM and Pub Quiz at Tilburg Unversity

Date: Thursday, 18 May 2017
Location: Grand Café Esplanade, Warandelaan 2; Tilburg
Time: 19:30/7:30 p.m.
Register by: 17 May (registration form below)
Cost: Free for members
Guests: €7,50 pp for guests (READ about how this can be pro-rated towards your membership fee)

As we near the end of our club year, it’s time again for our Annual General Meeting(required by our Constitution). This year, we will be combining the AGM with our Pub Quiz, which, after 2 fun and successful editions has become an annual event as well 🙂

This year, our brand new event planner – Andrew Kelly – will be making the Pub Quiz. Since Andrew is Irish and comes from the land of pubs, this is sure to be an improvement over my attempt from last year 😉

We will start the evening off with a short business meeting (20 minutes) in which TIC officers will give a brief presentation on how your club is doing as well as our goals for the future. We’d love to hear what you think and get your ideas as well. After the conclusion of the meeting, we will divide into teams and get right into the Pub Quiz. TIC will provide drinks and snacks + prizes for the winning team and a fun evening is sure to be had by all…even if your team doesn’t win 😉
