Manayunk Book Club January Meetup

Happy New Year! We're kicking off 2014 with The Position by Meg Wolitzer.

"In 1975, Paul and Roz Mellow write a bestselling Joy of Sex-type book that mortifies their four school-aged children and ultimately changes the shape of the family forever. Thirty years later, as the now dispersed family members argue over whether to reissue the book, we follow the complicated lives of each of the grown children and their conflicts in love, work, marriage, parenting, and, of course, sex -- all shadowed by the indelible specter of their highly sexualized parents. Insightful, panoramic, and compulsively readable, The Position is an American original."

We're meeting at Kildare's--$5 burger night!--for what will is sure to be a lively discussion. See you there.

    Any chance of changing up day of the week every now and then like we used to? Mark is taking a class Tuesday nights so I am on baby duty. Hopefully I'll make it to something in the near future, I miss you guys!

      I agree! I just started a part time job on Tuesday evenings and I don't want to have to give up book club!

    I'm wondering if there would be any interest in discussing some of these books on line, especially since there is usually limited room at the meetups. I was sorry to miss the last two meetups and am still wondering what people thought of the books.

    Who, for example, was your favoirite character in Bel Canto?

    Burgers at Kildares and a book that's $1.99 on Kindle might just be enough to draw me out of baby hibernation :)
