Next Meetup

Our Winter book club pick: Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton
RSVP policy: Please RSVP with the most honest intention of attending. I will make a reservation at the restaurant ahead of time, so please only RSVP if you are sure you will read the book and come. Since we will be dining together, cash or venmo will be helpful! Our Book Club: I will choose a book each season for us to enjoy and chat over a delightful dinner and wine! We will talk about the book, and while I hope that you will come having read the book, I promise there will be no quizzes :) Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton: After the death of her beloved grandmother, a Cuban-American woman travels to Havana, where she discovers the roots of her identity--and unearths a family secret hidden since the revolution... Havana, 1958. The daughter of a sugar baron, nineteen-year-old Elisa Perez is part of Cuba's high society, where she is largely sheltered from the country's growing political unrest--until she embarks on a clandestine affair with a passionate revolutionary... Miami, 2017. Freelance writer Marisol Ferrera grew up hearing romantic stories of Cuba from her late grandmother Elisa, who was forced to flee with her family during the revolution. Elisa's last wish was for Marisol to scatter her ashes in the country of her birth. Arriving in Havana, Marisol comes face-to-face with the contrast of Cuba's tropical, timeless beauty and its perilous political climate. When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she'll need the lessons of her grandmother's past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.
