What Judith P. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first meeting, and I was very impressed with how well run and organized it was. Laura did a terrific job of keeping the flow of conversation going and raising points to consider and discuss. It was clear that it is a group of dedicated readers who bring a lot of knowledge to the discussions, and I look forward to the next Meetup and book.
