Manayunk Book Club September Meetup

**Please note earlier time**

The winner, by a one-vote margin, is What Alice Forgot by Lianne Moriarty.

"A “cheerfully engaging”* novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over."

Sounds like an intriguing read. Looking forward to seeing everyone in September. And, as always, please send along suggestions for future books.

    Something has come up at work and I don't think I'll be able to make it. I enjoyed reading the book - looking forward to the next selection.

    Hi, Judith!

    The next month's book meeting is usually announced very soon after the current month's meeting. We don't actively send out blast emails for the book meetings, but if you have your meetup settings set to receive notifications of new meetings for this group, you'll probably receive an email from the system. If you don't hear anything in the next couple of days, check back here.

    Hope to see you at a future meeting!
