This month book is: The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant
Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie's intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can't imagine - a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love.
Eighty-five-year-old Addie tells the story of her life to her twenty-two-year-old granddaughter, who has asked her "How did you get to be the woman you are today."
We are a group of diverse people who love to read. We meet once a month on the third Tuesday & Wednesday. We have some great discussions, a few laughs and encourage making new friends.
Each month we read a new book, which we decide through a group poll. The poll is posted on the meetup site under the "More" tab, then just click on "polls" and vote. We have a variety of books to choose from and try to focus on uplifting books.
The cost is $6 and it includes $5 towards a pot of tea, a cup of coffee or a soda and covers the cost of rental for the location, as well $1 to cover the meetup group administration costs.
The things to consider while reading, for discussion at the next meeting can be found under this link: Things to consider
