Manayunk Book Club October Meetup

Greeting fellow book lovers! Our selection for October is a book that's gotten a lot of buzz, Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman.

"When federal agents knocked on her door with an indictment in hand, Piper Kerman barely resembled the reckless young woman she was shortly after graduating Smith College. Happily ensconced in a New York City apartment, with a promising career and an attentive boyfriend, Piper was forced to reckon with the consequences of her very brief, very careless dalliance in the world of drug trafficking.

Following a plea deal for her 10-year-old crime, Piper spent a year in the infamous women’s correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, which she found to be no “Club Fed.” In Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison, Piper takes readers into B-Dorm, a community of colorful, eccentric, vividly drawn women."

If anyone has suggestions for future books, please let me know. And please remember to change your RSVP settings in Meetup if something comes up and you can't make it. This is especially important in the fall/winter when we meet at restaurants and I need to make reservations.

We're back to our regular time, 7:30, and we're meeting at Han Dynasty. 

See you next month!

    I'm not able to attend tonight. Was on the wait list up until today, and I ended up scheduling a dentist appointment for tonight. Would definitely rather be there! Looking forward to meeting everyone next month.

    Apparently I had some sort of senior moment and didn't actually RSVP for this month's meeting. Derp! See you all next month.

    I was updating my RSVP (from me +1) to just me, and it went to RSVP no, by accident. Then when resending it put me on the waitlist. I am planning to attend

    I'm still 66th in line for the book from the library! Plus, my work schedule will change at the beginning of November so I should be there for November's meet up! I don't want to be a one book wonder!

      I understand. I had to break down and buy this one cause the wait list at the library was huge! I guess we like popular books. The November meetup will go online at the end of the month. Hopefully we'll see you then.

      It's online for $9. Worth it, by the way.

    Hi, I'm new to the club & would love to join if space becomes available! Wish I could make it for the Halloween get together but I have another obligation. Hope to meet soon!

      Hope you can make it Shana. Sometimes people drop out and the wait list folks get moved onto the yes list. Check the site closer to the meeting date to see where you stand.
