What we're about

(9-17-21 edit)

Hello and welcome to the 20s and 30s and early 40s women’s book club! We read a wide variety of book genres and meet on the last Sunday of each month from 3:00-4:30. We kindly ask that you attend one of our meetups within 90 days. Currently we’re meeting on Zoom only. There is a suggested donation of $5 to $10 at your second meeting to help us cover the annual cost of using Meetup. We’re a very casual group and a lot of us have met some of our nearest and dearest girlfriends through this club. We’re single, married, with kids, without kids, work in all kinds of fields, and LGBTQ+ and BIPOC friendly. We’re looking forward to discussing books with you!

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

Location visible to members

Piranesi's house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house.

There is one other person in the house—a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known.

The Midnight Library

Online event

Let’s meet early this month so book club doesn’t take place during anyone’s Thanksgiving plans. Alissa and Sareene recommend this book and it’s very popular. There’s potentially a long wait for it at the library so add it to your hold list now!

The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

Online event

All of them are friends. One of them is a killer.

During the languid days of the Christmas break, a group of thirtysomething friends from Oxford meet to welcome in the New Year together, a tradition they began as students ten years ago. For this vacation, they’ve chosen an idyllic and isolated estate in the Scottish Highlands—the perfect place to get away and unwind by themselves.

They arrive on December 30th, just before a historic blizzard seals the lodge off from the outside world.

Two days later, on New Year’s Day, one of them is dead.

The trip began innocently enough: admiring the stunning if foreboding scenery, champagne in front of a crackling fire, and reminiscences about the past. But after a decade, the weight of secret resentments has grown too heavy for the group’s tenuous nostalgia to bear. Amid the boisterous revelry of New Year’s Eve, the cord holding them together snaps.

Now one of them is dead . . . and another of them did it.

Keep your friends close, the old adage goes. But just how close is too close?
