June Meetup for the Goldfinch

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is enjoying "The Goldfinch." We're meeting at Speakeasy Saloon this month since the character in the book Theo always said he appreciated good, classic American food.

Our July book is "The Sixth Extinction." Bring your suggestions for August.

One final reminder: RSVP for this event if you're pretty sure you can attend. Sometimes things come up and you have to change your RSVP, and that is understandable. However, last month we had four people RSVP yes and either not show up or change their RSVP within a half hour of our dinner reservation. All four of these people are no longer members.

    What was the book chosen for August? The Golem or the Summer House? I don't remember how the vote ended up.

    Lively conversation going at 2 tables about "the Goldfinch". In the background, the murals of the Speakeasy could be seen sparking other intersting observations.

    Kid just got back home from college. I read the book, but have a million things I have to get done today. Sorry I will miss the discussion.

    Who is the author for "The Sixth Extinction"? I was looking it up on Amazon and found several books with the same title.

    Hi Lisa - Since I am new here and not sure what everyone has read so far, I wondered if The Art Forger has already been read by your group? And are all genres considered? Thanks.

      We have not read the Art Forger, so feel free to suggest it as a possibility for August. All genres are considered. We read fiction, non-fiction, books that just hit the market, old classics, plays and even graphic novels.
