What we're about

This book club is for women who are interested in reading great books 📚. We meet monthly to discuss books from a wide variety of authors. Consistent members have the opportunity to choose a book to put into the rotation.

The books we read are thought-provoking💡 books that you might not pick up on your own. The meetings are casual and usually held at a coffee shop (During COVID we are having Zoom meetings until restrictions are lifted). We occasionally attend plays or musicals based on books.

Each member will take turns being a Book Expert (they pick the book for the month) and a Questions person (they find the book club questions for the month).

It's always interesting, so don't be shy, come and introduce yourself. New members are most welcome. ☺️

***If you RSVP'd yes and are not able to attend a meeting, please change your RSVP to no. If you leave your RSVP as yes for 2 meetings without changing it to a no, you will be removed from the group.

****Politics will only be discussed if there is a reference in our book. Otherwise, let's leave politics outside of our group.👍

Have a wonderful day!💕

Julia's book selection because why not throw in some science fiction? Julia will provide book club discussion questions.

In The Power the world is a recognisable place: there's a rich Nigerian kid who lounges around the family pool; a foster girl whose religious parents hide their true nature; a local American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But something vital has changed, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power - they can cause agonising pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world changes utterly.

This extraordinary novel by Naomi Alderman, a Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year and Granta Best of British writer, is not only a gripping story of how the world would change if power was in the hands of women but also exposes, with breath-taking daring, our contemporary world.

Haromony will provide discussion questions. This is her book choice and sounds like Beth was also interested.

If there’s one trait that makes someone well suited to comedy, it’s being able to take a punch—metaphorically and, occasionally, physically.

From growing up in a family of firefighters on Staten Island to commuting three hours a day to high school and “seeing the sights” (like watching a Russian woman throw a stroller off the back of a ferry), to attending Harvard while Facebook was created, Jost shares how he has navigated the world like a slightly smarter Forrest Gump.

You’ll also discover things about Jost that will surprise and confuse you, like how Jimmy Buffett saved his life, how Czech teenagers attacked him with potato salad, how an insect laid eggs inside his legs, and how he competed in a twenty-five-man match at WrestleMania (and almost won). You’ll go behind the scenes at SNL and Weekend Update (where he’s written some of the most memorable sketches and jokes of the past fifteen years). And you’ll experience the life of a touring stand-up comedian—from performing in rural college cafeterias at noon to opening for Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall.

For every accomplishment (hosting the Emmys), there is a setback (hosting the Emmys). And for every absurd moment (watching paramedics give CPR to a raccoon), there is an honest, emotional one (recounting his mother’s experience on the scene of the Twin Towers’ collapse on 9/11). Told with a healthy dose of self-deprecation, A Very Punchable Face reveals the brilliant mind behind some of the dumbest sketches on television, and lays bare the heart and humor of a hardworking guy—with a face you can’t help but want to punch.
