1.      On Thursday, December 2nd from 2-3 pm, the KFNV Movie Club will discuss the movie, Harriet, a 2019 American biographical film of Harriet Tubman.  Harriet was   directed by Kasi Lemmons, who co- wrote the screenplay with Gregory Allen Howard. Harriet stars Cynthia Erivo and features Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alwyn, and Janelle Monáe in supporting roles;

2.      On that very same day—December 2nd– and just one hour after the conclusion of the Movie Club —from 4 to 5 pm –the KFNV will welcome Betty Figlure for the last KFNV highlight event of the year. In anticipation of the hustle and bustle of the holiday, Ms. Figlure’s virtual presentation will be: “Meditation for Stress Reduction: Christmas, Chanukah, COVID.”  Ms. Figlure is the Wellness Coordinator at the Rockville Senior Center where she also teaches meditation and yoga. She also has a private healing practice using Jin Shin Jyutsu (jitsu), a form of energy work for deep healing as well as a massage therapy practice.  Ms. Figlure has taught meditation and stress reduction classes for over 35 years and is certified in several healing modalities. The KFNV cordially invites all members of the King Farm community to this event, as KFNV membership is not required for virtual attendance at this presentation;

Unsheltered is a novel that explores two families living in the same house in Vineland, New Jersey during two different eras: the 21st and 19th centuries. Uniquely, the novel alternates between the two time periods by using the last words of one chapter for the title of the next chapter.  As Bookbrowse.com described, Unsheltered is “(b)rilliantly executed and compulsively readable,” and finally; 

4.      The last KFNV Coffee and Conversation for 2021 will be held on Wednesday, December 15th where the topic will be: “What are you looking forward to in 2022?”
