Meet kindred book lovers in a stimulating, coed book club! This book club already existed and has members, but we'd like to have new members join and we have continued doing so throughout the time the book club has existed- new blood and thoughts help make the book club even more interesting and diverse. The age range of the group is between the late twenties to the late 40s and one must fill out the form (I know it's a pain) and be selected by the group to join. We meet on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. (members who want to come at 7 p.m. can come for the gab session -7-7:30- to get to know each other better, catch up, etc.) about every 4-5 weeks. We alternate between fiction and non-fiction. In the past, we met at people's homes all over the DC area; but now we are meeting and alternating between two set great locations: La Madeline in downtown Bethesda and Dirty Martinis in Dupont (at both you can eat and/or drink, if you want, good, inexpensive food). Perhaps we might occassionally meet at members' homes as well. We'll also have happy hours (which happens at Dirty Martinis when we have book club there--before book club starts and the happy hour prices continue during the book club meeting) where we can get to know each other better and discuss our must reads, etc. At book club, you'll read a new book (wide range of genres, etc. and perhaps ones you wouldn't normally select--but when that happens book club members tell me how happy they are to be introduced to other genres/authors, etc.) and get to share your thoughts and discuss it with others. We pick a new book together and that's fun as well and we don't pick bestsellers unless it's actually a good well, written book that lends to interesting discussion/thought; (I've been told that makes us different than a lot of book clubs.). Come to laugh, share stories and make new friends!
