Meet others like yourself who have not forgotten, "the places you will go" when you read a great book! Enjoy social time making friends and discussing interesting reads.
Members of BETWEEN THE COVERS read and discuss books from all genres. Our selections are based on suggestions from the members. While we have a new name (formally known as The Page Turners) and a new organizer, (since August 2018) this group has been in existence since 2009. We reorganized on meetup in 2015 so lost some of the history of our previous reads. The organizer is a group veteran, attending her first meetup in March 2010.
Generally every other month our book selection will be based on a theme (ex: classic, non-fiction, science fiction, etc.) and suggestions are made by any member of the group. The other months it will come from any genre and suggestions made by one member. The book will be chosen by polls approximately 2 months before the discussion. Our Meetups will be once a month in the Worcester/Central MA area often on Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons with an occasional week-day meeting.
Our members include people of all backgrounds and ages, though generally mid-twenties and older. Of course, everyone is welcome! The more diversity among our group, the more perspectives and interesting discussions.
In addition to our monthly discussions, we will also have occasional social gatherings (coffee, dinner, movies, book swap) to get to know one another without the pressure of a "reading assignment"!
The only "rule" to remain an active member is that you sign-in and look at the page at least once within three months. There are not a minimum number of meet-ups you need to attend to stay active but we are limited to 50 members, so want people that are truly interested in what's happening in the group.
We look forward to meeting you soon (between the covers, of course!) :-)
