We'll meet in May at Panera on McKnight Road. They don't have a meeting room at this location anymore. So if the weather is nice (fingers crossed!) we'll meet outside. If the weather is too cool for that, we will just pull tables together inside. If you RSVP yes, please check your email that day to find out where we will be.
For our June, July, August and maybe September meetings I hope we can meet at places where we can sit outside. I have a few ideas already but would love to hear your ideas of where we can meet.
Our book is Ten Girls to Watch by Charity Shumway:
A radiant debut novel about stumbling through the early years of adulthood— and a love letter to the role models who light the way.
Like so many other recent graduates, Dawn West is trying to make her way in New York City. She’s got an ex-boyfriend she can’t quite stop seeing, a roommate who views rent checks and basic hygiene as optional, and a writing career that’s gotten as far as penning an online lawn care advice column.
So when Dawn lands a job tracking down the past winners of Charm magazine’s “Ten Girls to Watch” contest, she’s thrilled. After all, she’s being paid to interview hundreds of fascinating women: once outstanding college students, they have gone on to become mayors, opera singers, and air force pilots. As Dawn gets to know their life stories, she’ll discover that success, love, and friendship can be found in the most unexpected of places. Most importantly, she’ll learn that while those who came before us can be role models, ultimately, we each have to create our own happy ending.
Please bring book suggestions for us to vote on for July. Thanks to Becky for bringing this book to our April meeting.
