The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern #1

The book for our January Meetups is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Please RSVP for only one date. Here is a description of the book:

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway—a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love—a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.

True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus per­formers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.

Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

    Hi ladies. I just joined the group. I would love to be at the meetup, but I don't think I will have read the book. Should I wait to the next meetup. Do we have an idea for the next book yet

    I'm looking at Cafe European, but that may be a bit pricey for some. Millers Ale house has a wide range of selections from fajitas to steak salad and fish and chips.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
