February Book Choice & Potluck - Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

  • Feb 20, 2014 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our February book choice is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. This meeting will be at a member's place and is a potluck. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love—and just how hard it pulled you under.

Eleanor & Park is the winner of the 2013 Boston Globe Horn Book Award for Best Fiction Book.
A Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2013 A New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of 2013
A Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book of 2013
An NPR Best Book of 2013

    Also a spoon was left behind - so I will bring that to the next meeting in March so it can find its owner.

    Thanks everyone for coming last week! It was a lot of fun! Here is the slow cooker Korean Beef Tacos recipe that I was recommending to someone (I can't remember who so I am posting it here)....I used this beef part: http://www.foodiewithfamily.com/2013/09/30/slow-cooker-korean-beef-tacos-make-ahead-mondays/ and this slaw part: http://carpeseason.com/crockpot-korean-beef-rib-tacos-with-asian-slaw/ and it was SOOO good.

    Can't wait to see you all! My phone got destroyed at work today so the best bet is to message/email me if you have questions. We have two parking spots in back, one is going to Anita but if you can't seem to find a place feel free to grab the other spot. If you need directions on which it is in the alley, email me. Sorry about the phone - its pretty annoying.

    Good afternoon ladies! Sorry for the short notice but I'm going to have to stay away from book club this time. While my corn bread is delicious to share, my newly acquired bronchitis is not. Enjoy the feast!

    Hello! I messaged everyone I could with my address. I was unable to message those that have the setting that only organizers can message them or write on their walls. So if you are one of those people you can message me and I will send you my address directly. I was unable to create a mass email, so once you know what you are bringing just post below Thanks! Can't wait to see you!

    February 9, 2014

    • Caroline

      Got your message! I'll send an email to everyone! And everyone can continue to post on here
