Do you enjoy discussing current issues, reading and interested in meeting new people? Join a book club for progressive women (27 to 40) living in Santa Monica and West LA.
This book club meets once a month on Thursday and has been going strong for almost 2 years. We are a group of women interested in talking about current issues and meeting other like-minded people. We read a variety a books but most tend to have a general theme (we generally choose our books from the NPR or New York Times Bestsellers List)
To get a glimpse of the types of books you will read in this group below are some past selections:
What is the What
History of Love
The Last Lecture
Mountains Beyond Mountains
Gang Leader for a Day
Dreams from my Father
Our meetings are held at members homes starting at 7:00 pm. Everyone is asked to bring a snack to pass and we usually share a bottle or two of wine. We ask all members in the group to respect everyone's views, not interrupt others and to take turns contributing to the conversation.
If you are interested in joining our group, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org introducing yourself to the group including:
-what you do
-why you are interested in joining
In addition, you must join the meet up group if you want to be a member. All our communication regarding the book club is sent through the meet up!
Welcome! Book Lovers in West LA!
