We attempt literary darling Donna Tartt's new novel, The Goldfinch, about a boy who survives a terrorist attempt in New York City. One of the things I'd like to know is, why is her work so critically acclaimed? And popular?

    Hi, unfortunately I have to go to a funeral on Saturday so won't be attending. I am enjoying the book so I hope you have a good chat. I hope yours turned up Carolyn as it is a hefty tome and takes awhile to read. See you all in Feb.

      Sorry for your loss Maria. Thanks for letting me know. Yes it is a hefty book to read. Mine only arrived a week ago. I think I will only just finish it but it is a great read with lots to discuss about it. Yes hope to see you next month. Carolyn.

    I'm not going to be able to make it this month. Sorry to miss it, especially as I suggested the book. I'm finding it a good read so I hope it proves to be good for discussion!

    Hi Carolyn,
    Sorry I didn't get to club ln Sat but I had a very sore back and couldn't move from bed until after midday. Much better now. Hope everyone had a fruitful exchange

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.
