To the dozen of you on the wait list for The Enchantress of Florence tomorrow (Tuesday): If you've read the book and would like to join, please do. I'd hate to be responsible for anyone bursting open due to the pressure of his or her thoughts and opinions on the novel straining to get out, and I'm pretty sure that we'll still have a manageable group size.
This group was established during the summer of 2007 as a casual, social means of discussing the books that have been sitting on our nightstands, or on our "Must Read!" lists for months, as well as providing the incentive with which to actually read them. The group originally ran with two branches: Cambridge and Brookline, and our goal is to provide similar groupings in and around the Boston area. Organization has changed hands over the past two years, but the result has always been a source of good conversation, new acquaintances, and exposure to books and genres that provide both comfort and exploration. So, if you're into reading, talking, and often eating (yay, eating!), you are even remotely close to the Boston area, and are the ages of 20-30ish, this is the group for you.
