East Side Book Pub! Pages

Hi and thanks for checking us out.

We meet once a month on Sunday evening. It's sort of a random Sunday but generally towards the end of the month.

There are usually around 6-10 people that show up each month though one meetup had two of us and another had 27. It depends on the book - and the weather. We're demographically diverse and not much of a "pick-up" group (or maybe we are and it's just not happening for me). More women than men.

Each month members suggest books and pubs at the meetup or email. The suggestions are put into a poll and everyone votes. We've been reading primarily contemporary fiction, however anything is a possibility (since it's a democratic process it just depends what everyone wants to read!). Some of our reads have included: "The Lacuna", "Three Cups of Tea", "The Help" before it became a move, "Half Broke Horses", "Birds Without Wings" - "We read A Visit from the Goon Squad" before it won the Pulitzer.

We'll meet anywhere on the East Side that has cold beer and a large enough table. Our discussions are informal but insightful. We're pretty well behaved though we have our days.

Please feel free to push that "join" button and poke around the page for more information and to see what other people are saying about the group. . . unless they've said something bad. Ignore those.
