October 11 Book Club:"Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" by Mindy Kaling

  • October 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Kimberly's Community Room

Jessica will be leading October's Discussion:

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that we're having a costume party at our house on Friday if any of you want to join! It was nice meeting you at the last meetup and I know you don't want to wait until January to see me again! :)
    The meetup is called Halloweenie Costume Party in the group Gays for Games...Board Games That is!

    Work has been a bear and I have only been able to get through half of the book. So, in deference to those waiting and the request for those of us who have yet to read all of the book....someone who is waiting please take my place. Abby, Maria, and Lucie hope to see you at one of our dog walks soon! :)

    Hey, Sara -- there was some discussion about reading "Orange is the New Black" at one of the upcoming meetings. Did we ever decide which one?

      OK, thanks -- maybe by that time the hold list at the library will get down to me. :-)

      Abby, yes, orange is for January. I don't think her memoir is as steamy as the show though!

    Hello! We officially got to Pasadena about a week ago, and are still getting settled in, but would love to offer up our house for the meeting if there isn't a set location yet. We've never done this before, so let us know where to go from here. :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
