Great meeting last weekend! As always, I was happy to be with you all :-)
- NORTH Book of the Month Selections - At this month's meeting, selections were made and books of the month were picked for the May, June, July, August, September and October meetings.
o May - Makeda by Randall Robinson
o June – Skin Tight by Carl Hiaasen
o July - Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende
o August – Where'd You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple
o September - We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
o October - The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The meetups (along with discussion questions, and author interviews) have been uploaded, so feel free to go ahead and RSVP.
- Social Events – We used to try to have social events which are vaguely related to our book of the month selections every other month. I would like to plan some social events for this summer/fall. If you have ideas please share them.
- Membership Dues – Annual membership dues are $5 to cover the costs of running the meetup. You can pay via Paypal or in person at the event/meeting you attend. If you haven’t yet paid your annual dues, please do so as soon as possible.
Last but not least, a BIG welcome to the many new members. We are so happy to have you, and I am always pleased to see so many new and old faces each month. I can't believe we now have over 860 members and meet in two different locations! I am excited that we have so much interest and look forward to getting to know and meet you all at our upcoming meetings and events.
As always if you have any suggestions for social events or ways to make the bookclub better please let me know and, if you have questions, always feel free to email me!
