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!
