Hi everyone! The book selection poll for the September, October and November books is closed and I've updated each of the scheduled events with the books. The winners are:
September- "Solitude of Prime Numbers" by Paolo Giordano
October- "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay
November- "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson
Thank you to those who nominated books and thanks to those who voted. Great turnout for voting at 36 participants! Just what I was hoping to see! If you nominated a book, and it didn't get chosen this time, there will be another poll in October to choose the books for December through February so don't be afraid to nominate them again!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
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.
