Why our group? What do you hope to contribute as a member of our group? PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST FILL OUT ALL QUESTIONS TO BE CONSIDERED..

It seems as though there's a wide variety of books being read, which I really like, and I also really like the setup of having small tables--it's much less intimidating as a newcomer! I hope to add something to the conversation, provide some laughs, and make some good memories.

Favorite Authors??

Neil Gaiman, Jane Austin, Amy Tan, Ha Jin, Dorothy Dunnett, and Sharon Kay Penman

Beloved Books??

Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, American Gods, Pride and Prejudice, Time's Arrow

Tell us a little more about who you are, where you come from...

I'm from Chicago, recently moved to New York a couple years ago, finally getting my butt into gear and exploring things that are less touristy, like book clubs and language classes. I'm a high school chemistry teacher for a public school in the Bronx, and I get called out by my students for saying "pop" instead of "soda" on a weekly basis. You can take the girl out of the Midwest....

Introduction

Hello! I'm a former bookworm trying to hoping to find the motivation to become one again by joining a book club. I'm also new(-ish) to the city and am hoping to meet some friendly faces.
