Wonderful turnout for this month's Meet Up! It was nice to have 2 new members join us for a very in-depth discussion of 'Room' by Emma Donoghue. The entire attending group gave this one a big thumb's up and that vote was surely expressed throughout the dinner discussions. Everyone seemed to enjoy the new Frank & Pauly's, whereby we were well taken care of by the wait staff (and last to depart).
We've also had a few new books added to the future selection list; 'The Hour I First Believed', 'Unbroken' and 'Wild'. All the juicy details can be downloaded by going to the 'More' tab and then 'Files'. The current book list with descriptions are always posted for you to download anytime. I've also added the previous Meet Up's discussion questions.
Jumping ahead to May, we'll be reading Sue Monk Kidd's 'Secret Life of Bees'. Several of you may have already read this one, so I expect us to turn it around quite quickly. All of the local libraries have plenty of available copies, not to mention you can buy it off Amazon for less than $10. I'd venture to bet Half Price Books has copies and some of us using e-readers may also have them to loan out.
Finally, I've posted another document in the Files section. The CSU Author Series just released their upcoming Writers Stage for[masked] and guess who is listed first? Emma Donoghue! Ann Patchett is coming too! So....if anyone is interested in attending, please let me know. I will most likely post an open Meet Up for each author to keep them front and center on our calendar.
Happy reading and chat soon!
