The featured book for Wednesday,
January 13 at 2:30 p.m. is All The
Light We Cannot See by Anthony
Doerr. “A World War II novel about
children, and the kind of undertaking
that requires a lot of work to rise above
emotional manipulation. For the first
hundred or so pages, the book seems
to rely on ready signifiers of heartbreak
and grandeur: a motherless blind girl, a
white-haired orphan boy, a cursed dia-
mond, lots and lots of bombs. But once
he hits his stride, Doerr takes these loud
parts and builds a beautiful, expansive
tale, woven with thoughtful reflections
on the meaning of life, the universe and
everything.” – LA Times

2nd term, and Mr. Cunningham is completing his 3rd and final term.
IWA is governed by a five member Board of Directors who serve without

attend all Board meetings, and must be IWA Members or an official
representative of a condominium or other IWA Corporate Member.
Directors must have no conflict of interest, including but not limited
to, active involvement in an enterprise which could potentially do
business with IWA or which could benefit from involvement with IWA.
Meetings are normally held on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
Directors are elected by the Membership at IWA’s Annual Meeting to
be held in April. Anyone who would like to run for one of the open
seats should contact our Board Recording Secretary, Beau Stanley, at
(239) 472-2113 (extension 114) or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
