June Book Club Meeting

The Book for June is Debbie Doesn't Do It Anymore By Walter Mosley.

Millions of men (and no doubt many women) have watched famed black porn queen Debbie Dare—she of the blond wig and blue contacts-"do it" on television and computer screens every which way with every combination of partners the mind of man can imagine. But one day an unexpected and thunderous on-set orgasm catches Debbie unawares, and when she returns to the mansion she shares with her husband, insatiable former porn star and "film producer" Theon Pinkney, she discovers that he's died in a case of hot tub electrocution, "auditioning" an aspiring "starlet." Burdened with massive debts that her husband incurred, and which various L.A. heavies want to collect on, Debbie must reckon with a life spent in the peculiar subculture of the pornography industry and her estrangement from her family and the child she had to give up. She's done with porn, but her options for what might come next include the possibility of suicide. Debbie . . . is a portrait of a ransacked but resilient soul in search of salvation and a cure for grief.

    The group was cool. Thanks Sheena for hosting. I will take a pass on the restaurant. Did not like the food or hospitality.

    Hello everyone! Just wanted to provide some information about the restaurant for this Saturdays meeting. They will not split the check and we can only use a limited amout of cards on the transaction. So the best bet is to bring cash. They also will not seat us unless our full party is present so pls update your RSVP if you can not make it. ( If these stipulations are to much of an issue pls let me know right away .I will need time to find another location) Thanks :-)
