Author: Maria Murnane (title was too long to fit in the Meeting name!)
On the recommendation of a former member during her Milwaukee public radio debut (http://www.wuwm.com/post/book-club-focuses-womens-fiction-okay-chick-lit - some other good suggestions here!) - we chose to read The (Mis)Adventures of Waverly Bryson by Maria Murnane for July.
From Amazon.com - (I also noticed this is available in the Kindle version for $2.99 right now):
Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would . . . or should. To stay sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes,” self-deprecating bits of single-girl humor that she hopes to one day develop into a line of greeting cards. Can’t face the dating scene after a bad breakup? Honey, hit the bar, and hit it hard. Beer goggles are the lonely girl’s Cupid. As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds listeners that everyone has had a bad date (or twelve), and that everyone needs a best friend to tell them, “Honey, you are not alone.”
We will be upstairs. As a reminder, we have $1 off draft beer or wine as our group special.
Hope to see you there!
