January Fiction Meeetup

Our January fiction book selection is The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan.

As with all of our book selections, you can find the selection at most libraries and used book stores. For Amazon information, click here: The Joy Luck Club, by Amy Tan.

As ever, you do not need to read all or any of the book to participate in our lively discussion. We ask $3 at the door to cover Press Club usage and our Meetup.com fee. No one will be turned away.

Adapted from Amazon.com review: A stunning literary achievement, The Joy Luck Club explores the tender and tenacious bond between four daughters and their mothers. The daughters know one side of their mothers, but they don't know about their earlier never-spoken of lives in China. The mothers want love and obedience from their daughters, but they don't know the gifts that the daughters keep to themselves. Heartwarming and bittersweet, this is a novel for mother, daughters, and those that love them.


NEXT BOOK SELECTION:
Please vote on our February and March selections through the "Polls" function on the website. And please nominate books for future club selections by using the message board or by contacting the Assistant Organizer directly. OUR REGULAR MEETUP LOCATION:
The Denver Press Club has offered us the use of their historic facility in downtown Denver for our meetups. By group decision, we meet the FOURTH THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH. As our Thanks, please patronize the establishment. The Press Club restaurant and bar opens at 5 PM, in case you wish to come early for dinner and possibly meet fellow readers or some of Denver's top journalists. We start our meeting at 7 PM. We're usually done by 8:30.

The oldest continuously operating press club in North America, the Denver Press Club is at 1330 Glenarm Place (across from the Denver Athletic Club). Parking: There are a few spaces behind the building in the alley and a few more angle-in spaces on the north side of the building between the Press Club and the Colorado Press Association (free after 5 PM). If these are full, there are on-street parking meters and parking lots on each corner of the block (avoid the monthly parking spaces directly south of the building, however). The parking lot on the south corner is less expensive than the parking lot on the north corner.

SEE YOU on Thursday, January 27!

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.
