Hi everyone! Just a quick reminder that the book selection polll is up and taking votes. You can find the poll by going to "More" and the "Polls." Select three books. The top three books, in order of popularity, will be our selections for the first three monthly book discussions.
The poll will close this Sunday at 7 pm. At that time, I'll update the calendar with the winners. Get out there and vote! This book club belongs to everyone! :)
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.
