They also discussed labyrinths in the book and in the club.  As a result, we went to a local labyrinth to check it out. You can find a labyrinth, too, at
There's still plenty of time to read the book if you'd like to join us in February.  Oh, and did I mention the club was FREE!!  All you have to do is sign up HERE.
