If I didn't say it before... Welcome to the Group! I'm so excited to have you all in it. I can't wait to meet all of you vibrant, fabulous women who joined up!
I'm so excited about this book club, and there seems to be a lot of people interested. Fantastic!
After you finish the book (we'll still love you if you don't), you might want to do something to get involved. As part of our discussion on November 12th, let's talk about how we can help CAI or the other organizations involved. What better way to reverse this bad economy karma, than to help those who have never seen a book or attended school.
Some ideas I thought about:
Doing a book drive Doing a "Pennies for Schools" Drive Contributing at our Meetings
Of course, this is totally optional. We are still all about having fun and gabbing.
Feel free to email me with more ideas, thoughts, whatever...
and Go Mizzou! (sorry, that's were I went to Law School) and Go Texas! (my home state)- I'll be celebrating the game in Austin with sorority sisters from Missouri- I'll be wearing a Tiger tail AND Longhorns. Let me know if your tailgating too!
This book club is designed to be a place where women can gather and meet each other, discuss the book of the month and see where those discussions lead us.
For the most part we are a great mix of Austinites and new comers, there are usually a pretty even mix of those that have been in the group for a while and those that are visiting for the first or second time.
In addition we usually have a brunch and/or happy hour in the month so we can get to know each other a little better.
For book club you can bring your favorite snack or drink but you don't have to. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you, good conversation, good food and loads of laughter are the norm here!
