This month we are reading two books! Yes two! The first is "B is for Beer" By Tom Robbins and the second is "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Mary Ann Shaffer. Don't worry if you can't finish both.
I have attached two links below if you need more info or need to buy the books.
B Is for Beer
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society By Mary Ann Shaffer, Annie Barrows
I hope that you like the choices of books. Remember that we will be choosing October's book at this Meetup
Also there will be a new attendance/RSVP policy in an effort to be polite to the venues that we use.
If you "NO SHOW" (That means you don't change your RSVP status before the event) more than twice you will be kicked out of the group. You will have up to 9 am the day of the event to change your RSVP status to "NOT COMING". Those who wish to RSVP the same day as the event may still do so, however if you no show you will still be subject to the attendance rule. Exceptions can be made for those who contact me.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO RSVP CORRECTLY SO THAT WE CAN SAVE THE CORRECT NUMBER OF SEATS AND BE POLITE TO THE VENUES THAT WE USE.
1) 21 and over plz - The books we may be reading (and the bars we plan and meeting to discuss the books in) mean that we need people to be at least 21 to participate.
2) "No homework" - We don't have set questions, it's open discussion. You won't get in trouble if you haven't read the book, but at least make an effort so you'll have something to talk about. Read the back cover at a bare minimum! ;-) If you haven't read it come anyway and hear about why you should, but be prepared for spoilers.
3) Be respectful. Be polite about any views or topics that may come up in the course of discussing a book, some of the books we might read are kind of strange or may riff on religion, politics, society, etc. Just take said books and our discussions with a sense of humor and a grain of salt and we'll all get along fine.
