1988 BELOVED by Toni Morrison

The novel won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1988[2] and was a finalist for the 1987 National Book Award.[3] During 2006 a New York Times survey of writers and literary critics ranked it as the best work of American fiction of the past 25 years.[4]

For our July selection we have scheduled 2 meetings. Two meetings? Why, yes! The group has grown a lot in the past 2-3 years, and we now have nearly 200 members. But, we limit our Meetups to 12 people, because discussions can get unwieldy with more than that. That means we typically have a long wait-list, which leads to frustration and disappointment.

For July, we'll have two Meetup sessions to discuss this book. That way, if you can't get a seat at the table for our session on Sunday July 13th, perhaps you'll be able to join us on Monday, July 14th. (The idea is that you'll pick the date that works best for you, unless you really, really want to talk about this book twice.)

As always, we'd love to have you join us, even if you haven't read the whole thing, if you've never come before, or you haven't been here in months. We don't care. We're not one of those clique-y groups. Come on by and pull up a chair.

Black Mountain has 25 lovely wines available for your drinking pleasure, tasty small plates, and a comfortable vibe. Come join us on Sunday, July 13th!

Happy reading, 
-Joe

P.S. #1: Oh, about the $1 fee: Meetup charges $12+/month to maintain a Meetup group, so this is just an attempt to defray that cost. 

P.S.#2: If you do need to cancel for some reason, please do so with as much advance notice as possible. We’ve now got more than 200 members, and even with two Meetups, we may well have a waiting list for our events. By canceling as soon as you can, you enable others to participate as well, which is nice for all.
