Wine/Sparkling Beverage & Book Recommendations

  • This location is shown only to members

By popular demand we are going to tweak this meetup a bit, we hope you like it. We would like you to come with your book recommendations and join us for a low key night out with  a list of book recommendations you would like to share or a list of subjects you are trying to find books on or wish someone in the whole wide world would have written a book about because one of our members may know of such a book already in existence. These subjects can be targeted toward African Americans or hair, gender roles, workplace issues, romance books, fiction or non-fiction basically everything is game, we do not care, whatever you want to dish about bring it and we are going to be ready to dish. I know during our Kandi Koated meetup FSOG (Fifty Shades of Grey) was brought up and I had to recommend something better on the spot so I am hoping those members or going to let me know what they thought when they come. So the spirit of this meetup is drinks, fun and hanging with our GC members new and old (time in the group, not age do not come looking for me with angry eyes, lol).

Any questions post them in the comments below or as always just email one of us!

    I looked up the other hair book I fake read. Ultra Black Hair Growth II. I think I'll finish that book today. :)) I ready enjoyed myself and the convo. Always good to hear other people's views on life. :)

      That's the first book I started reading. It was actually pretty good giving the info on how to grow hair. She has a link to purchase products but it didn't wheel. This is one of the books Kimmay read to help with her hair growth. I'll finish it though. You're welcome. :)

      Ditto. I forgot to say one thing I repeat to myself when I start to get irritated by things out of my control... if I die tomorrow will it matter. Most of the time the answer is NO!!! So, I let it go. :))
