What book(s) have you read recently that would make a great basis for stimulating conversation?

I have to admit that I haven't read a book recently. That's why I want to join the book club. I want to get back into the habit of reading again because I used to enjoy it so much.

What's your favorite nonfiction book ever?

Karen. It's a biography of a little girl who was born with cerebral palsy and how her mother's persistence in seeking treatments for her led to the developments of treatments for cerebral palsy today. I also loved Madame Curie and Helen Keller biographies.

What's a novel that you read for a high school or college requirement that really stayed with you?

The first thing that comes to mind is actually a play..........Our Town by Thonton Wilder. It just blew me away. But The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran and A Concise Treasury of Great Poems, a collection by Louis Untermeyer, are books from my teen years that I still have today. They are both very dog eared and worn from the number of times that I've read them. They weren't required though. I just fell in love with them and they opened the door to so many other books and poems that I went on to read. I also loved Victoria Holt and Agatha Christie. My favorites were poetry thought like Robert Frost, Sandburg and John Clare.


I'm not sure what this question is.


I am a retired 63 year old female. I moved down here from New York 27 years ago. I enjoy reading, computers, Mah Jong and most card games and board games, trees, and the ocean.

What Chris H. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love the format of this club. I have a choice of books to read and as I listen to others discuss the books I didn't read, I can start forming a reading list of books I want to read independently.
