This month, we'll be reading The Paris Wife, by Paula McLain.

It is available online on, at and in banches of the the Vancouver Public Library.

We'll be meeting on Tuesday, May 28th at Rockford (on Broadway at Burrard, eastbound stop "Pine St", westbound "Burrard St" for #9, 14 and 16).

As we did for The Lifeboat, please come with a question, comment or remark about the book to share during the discussion. It makes things much livelier than when we discuss the publisher-issued questions!

    Hey ladies! I'm gonna have my birthday dinner at the Rockford Bar and Grill on June 22, 2013....

    I know we all aren't extremely close (yet), but I'd like to openly invite you to come! That's one of the reasons I joined the bookclub.. Is to meet new people and develop life long friendships! So if you can make it, come for the yummy food and drinks, and hang out with me :) Email or text me if you are thinking about coming![masked]

      That's so sweet of you to offer Pamela, but we don't have to celebrate on the night of the bookclub. See you at the meeting later in the month!

    I really enjoyed the book club discussion last night. It was my first time attending both a book club and a meet up group and will definitely attend more in the future! Look forward to the next one.

    I enjoyed the smaller groups. It was nice to hear everyone in the groups opinion. I do miss the large group experience though, because there were people there I didn't know or get to meet/mingle with.

      I completely agree with you Victoria. It was great to be able to hear what everyone at our table was saying and to have the more intimate conversations but I also felt that I missed the larger group as well.

    I had hoped to be over my cold by now, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Have a great discussion. I hope to be back for the next one. -Joanna
