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..

Your group intrigues me because it seems more organized than most. It's disappointing to join a book club that's more about the wine & cocktails and less about the discussion of the material itself. I love a good character study, and I look forward to participating without dominating the conversation.

Favorite Authors??

Current fiction/classic fiction: Anne Tyler, Claire Messud, John Irving, Richard Ford, Ernest Hemingway, Annie Proulx, Fyodor Dostoevsky, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Carol Shields, an admitted new fan of Jane Austen, Jhumpa Lahiri

Beloved Books??

The World According to Garp/John Irving; Interpreter of Maladies/Jhumpa Lahiri; The Stone Diaries/Carol Shields; The Shipping News/Annie Proulx

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

I've lived in Asia and in Utah, but I was raised here in the NY/NJ area and have returned after a long absence. I've in the shipping business for years and took a sabbatical to become a professional photographer. I do love a great glass of wine....


I love reading and discussing books, and I'm always looking to find great material outside my basic zone of comfort. I'm an international transportation logistics professional who loves to travel and learn about the worlds' cultures.
