Welcome to a Book Club for young professional women in the Rochester area.

We read one book a month; meet at a coffee shop (or outside during the summer) to discuss and socialize, and then also have some social events in between book meetings throughout the month. Age group geared toward 20's, 30's and 40's.

Book selection rules:

1. All books must be secular and non religious, we won't be reading the "Heaven is for real" kind of crap.

2. NO classics, books should preferably have been published in the past 30 years. As much as I love Fahrenheit 451, this book club is to explore new and current writing and perspectives.

3. No chic lit, cheap romance or "adult" fiction. 100% no shades of any color. If this is your thing, no offence, you won't fit in with this crowd.


The book club meetings are typically set for 10-12 people due to space. We started out strict by booting no show offenders after two or three times. But at this point, just be respectful of the group, and you won't get booted.

If you want to add books you are welcome to join the good reads group as well: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/117484-coffee-and-modern-lit-chics (we have this to keep track of our bookshelf) And you can see what we've read in the past.
