Thanks to the 7 members who were able to join us on Firehouse's patio last night. We just missed the rain and enjoyed good food, company and nicer temperatures. There was an engaging, lively discussion of our August selection, 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog.' Most of us struggled to get going, but very much enjoyed the book's characters, French-to-English translation, and unexpected ending. Please check out the discussion questions under the 'files' category on our meet up page for more details.
Next up - check out the polls to vote on a new place and date for our next read. Erica FINALLY got lucky (or convinced enough of us) to see her book picked, 'The Gathering' by Anne Enright. Most of our local libraries have ample copies, but do make sure you reserve the right one. There are several books with similar titles.
Hope everyone will enjoy the fall-like weather and see you in a few weeks!
Girls only! This book club was founded over 5 years ago at a local publishing company between a few editors and ad sales reps. These gals wanted to share their thoughts and feelings about a recent books or articles, add it a little friendly gossip and enjoy local meeting spots; such as a wine bar, coffee shop or new pub/restaurant. After a few career changes, relocation's and the beginnings of new families, we broadened our wings and started a Meet Up group to attract new members.
Current book selections are featured on the home page, however, you can also find them by going to the 'More' tab and then 'Files'. Download the book club list and descriptions for current, past and all future selections. At each meet up, the attending group votes on a book for the next month.
Polls are one of the key features to organizing each meet up location and destination. Keep coming back to the site to vote!
Check out our calendar and message board. Local book sales, events, and tips are regularly posted.
Feel free to also join us at GoodReads.com or stop by our next monthly meeting! Please bring a friend too!
