Hi! I moved to the Sarasota area in 2005 and have belonged to another book club but am seeking a more diversified community of book lovers. A former English teacher, I have an M.A. in English and creative writing from The University of Iowa.

What Becky O. is saying about this Meetup Group

My first meeting was on April 20, 2012, because the book chosen was contemporary and relevant to our American culture (winner of 2011) Pulitzer Prize. I felt the discussion was a little too "helter skelter" for a book club, although lots of interesting perspectives came from the members. My suggestion is to focus on "aspects of the novel" one at a time: (1) theme (2) tone (3) plot (4) characters (5) style.
