A few of us thought it might be fun to have a special Harry Potter discussion sometime in late August after we've had a chance to read book 7 and think about the series as a whole. This would be in addition to, not in lieu of, our regular more "serious" meetups.
If you're interested or have suggestions/thoughts - please let me know and I will set it up. If there's a lot of interest we may have to reserve some space somewhere, but I'll see what the interest level is and keep you posted.
You can reply to me at [address removed] or through the link on the meetup.com site, or to the whole darn mailing list by replying to this email (though I don't think everyone would love that).
Read a good book. Meet new and interesting people who've read it too. Feed your brain...and your stomach.
For a list of our past reads, please see the calendar or the photo album. Our focus is on finding worthwhile literature and still covering a variety of eras, countries and fiction (and once in a while, non-fiction) genres. We try to find books that are a manageable length (200-350 pages) and that make us think.
(Our members are well-educated, but note that the majority of us do not have English/literature degrees. We are just smart people who like a good book and meeting new friends.)
We sit in smaller groups at the restaurants - usually 4-8 people per table, so that everyone can participate in a friendly, pressure-free environment and get to know the others at their table.
As we continue to grow, keeping a manageable size and a good balance of old and new members is important to us...which is why we ask you to please fill out the profile questions in order to be fairly considered for membership. (We also require current, identifiable photos for all members in order to join, and to be maintained thereafter).
Our policies are now found at the "Pages" link, and are enforced.
