Hi everyone! I would like to post a poll for us to pick the first three months worth of book selections. (it would be in order of popularity in the vote... this gives everyone plenty of time to find and read the books each month) This is completely by nomination so please feel free to send me one or more nominations for books and I'll put them in the poll. You can just send me a message through Meetup. Remember, they should be books that can be discussed by a group, and they don't have to be current NY Times Bestsellers, please feel free to nominate any books you feel the group might like to read. Look forward to hearing everyone's nominations! Tracey
There are several book clubs out there but they either seem to be disbanding, specialized or for women only so I decided to start this one. I am the former organizer of a large book club in Nashville which, I'm proud to say, is still going strong and I hope to bring that same success to this one. I had the opportunity to read a lot of great books I may not have picked up on my own and I hope to be introduced to even more!
This is a co-ed bookclub that will meet once a month, at local coffee shops and cafes in the area, and discuss one book per month. While the meetups will happen primarily in the Edgewater/Andersonbille/Rogers Park area, it isn't limited to people who live in those areas; all are welcome!
Books will be selected through a nomination and voting process (via the polling system on Meetup) and provided three months at a time so folks (especially those who like to use the library) have a chance to find and read the books.
Other events that don't require reading a book (but do have a literary theme) will also be set up such as checking out the movie versions of books we've read, live productions, etc.
