Yes, really, here's another book club. Do I have a fantastic uniquely creative concept to draw you in? Well, I like to think I am moderately creative, but basically I just want a group to read books we all select, get together for a glass of something and a few (hopefully decadent) snacks and seriously talk about the book we have read.

I have been in other book clubs and they did not work out for me because of location, meeting day or time, or because they just fell apart.

I hope to structure the meetings with a half hour pre-meeting social time, an hour of discussion with a leader that begins with set questions to ponder and veers off anywhere, and finish with another social period that can last as long as everyone wants it to.

The meetings will all be in Saint Paul, and I hope to get input on quiet, accommodating venues with food and drink. I will hold the first meeting at my house just to get us started.

Book selections will be made by the group, and I am up for reading anything. The only rule is: Only one really depressing book in a 3 month period.

Really looking forward to our first meeting, and can't wait to meet y'all.

This group welcomes everyone! The more diverse we are, the more fun we will have.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
