Please Note: Even though Meetup no longer allows groups to close to new membersWomen's West Suburbs Books and Bordeaux will not be accepting new members until February 2015. Due to the tremendous growth in our group and increasing attendance at our meetings we will temporarily stop accepting new members in order to better manage our growth. Please check back in February if you are interested in joining. Thanks!
Do you love to read thought provoking books? Does the thought of discussing them over a glass of fine wine fill you with joy and a sense that all is right with the world? Well we may be the group for you!
We are a welcoming group of women who meet each month to discuss, debate, laugh and share meaningful insights about our book of the month. Our members submit intriguing fictional and non-fictional book suggestions (recent releases or at least within the last 5 years) and new members often comment on how much they love our lineup.
We are also working with our publicist to include author visits a few times a year (we recently had Andy Mozina, author of Quality Snacks out for a group discussion). It is great to be able to view a story from an author's viewpoint and find out all of the things that inspired them while writing their story. This fall we will be having Lori Rader Day join us.
Our meetup place of choice is Flight 112 in Elmhurst, which has been mentioned in the Best of Yelp and also in Time Out Chicago as one of the top 50 bars. The wine, the small plates and the atmosphere, along with our monthly book discussions are truly to be savored.
We look forward to having new members join us. Please note, however, we are all about active involvement and thought provoking discussion. Our expectation is that our members will attend at least 3 to 4 of our meetups per year. If this sounds good to you, we would love to have you join us!
