The Des Moines Book Club Monthly Meetup BOOK: Population 485/Michael Perry

  • This location is shown only to members

Join the Des Moines Book Club! Discuss books, share ideas, and broaden your social circle! We read a wide variety of titles and are always open to suggestions. Titles for the next month are voted on at the end of each meeting. We try hard to stay on topic, discussing each book at length (even if we didn't finish it, because there's probably a reason!).  For February's meeting, we're reading Population 485 by Michael Perry. AND, if you like, read Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel as a sidebar, and prepare to discuss that in March (along with our monthly selection).

    Meetings are great fun. Glad to see new members who won't feel new for long because the group is so welcoming. Always enjoy the meetings and the variety of book selections keeps things interesting.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it this month. Hope you guys have fun. In light of our last conversation, I found this interesting podcast about some of the issues with having children later in life http://www.npr.org/2013/01/17/169497668/grayest-generation-older-parenthood-in-the-u-s.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it in Feb. Related to our last meeting, I found this NPR episode about the issues with older parents http://www.npr.org/2013/01/17/169497668/grayest-generation-older-parenthood-in-the-u-s.

    Thanks for that correction! 485 is what I had written down, but when I looked for it last night at group, only 451 was coming up, as well as Fahrenheit 451. :D

    I am looking forward to reading and meeting all...since having kids it is the one thing I gave up - and look forward to getting lost in a few books again this year!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
