I would like to apologize for my absence the past few months. I have had a number of things going on in my life that have taken me away from home for extended periods of time and the little amount of time I had to myself left me with little energy to do anything else, let alone communicate with members of this meetup or coordinate meetings. I see no end in sight and even if there was, it would be better if someone else could take over leadership. I'm stepping down as coordinater and letting someone else take my place. I wish you all the best in your literary and other pursuits.
We are a smaller book club that meets monthly. We read fiction and non-fiction and have vegetarian-friendly dinners at meetings. Our members come from all walks of life. The things we have in common are that we like to read, have thoughtful discussions, and eat!
It's OK to come to the meetings even if you didn't like the book or couldn't finish the book. Also, you don't have to be vegetarian to join, and this group is NOT designed as a forum for reading/discussing books about vegetarianism.
