Meet to discuss current book and choose next one.

Hello! It's 2014 and I hope everyone is staying safe and warm. Our January meetup has an abbreviated agenda as there will be no book discussion. 

Since we have so many new members and existing members that haven't yet had the opportunity to meet, then it's the best way to kickoff the new year. We'll also be choosing books for the next (3) months. So, everyone bring one to two picks. 

For January, we'll be returning to The Pour House Cafe on Kirkwood Avenue. Parking should not be an issue. There's metered parking and some parking lots as well where you can park for free. 

If you haven't made it to a meeting yet, the January meetup is an excellent place to start. Even if you can't attend the entire meeting, PLEASE don't let that stop you from attending.  

Please, do take a moment to RSVP. I can't wait to see all of you there. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please send me an email or post a comment here.

Until then!

    I waited at the pour house for 30 minutes. Didn't see the crowd or somehow missed everyone. Let me know if there was a meeting and what was suggested.

      Babak - I'm so sad to hear that we missed you. Due to the music volume, we moved to a downstairs meeting room. I would have loved for you to have been there. Next time at Rachael's Cafe!! Btw, no downstairs.

    Do you have a list of books the group has already read so my suggestions aren't repeats?

      In the Discussion Area (see above toolbar), there's more info re: past books. We've read the following: The Other Wes Moore, Calico Joe, Wonder, The Girl with the Tangerine Scarf, A 1000 Splendid Suns, Children of Men, Back When We Were Grownups & The Last Chinese Chef. Jane or I will be bringing a computer b/c a key part of picking books is availability. Buying the book should not be necessary and certainly not mandatory. If you have time and want to check your choices in advance (on mcpl), that would be helpful. But I do know that can be time consuming. Then we'll put the in a hat and pick. See you there.

      Too bad Katie, but I'll make sure to post by end of Friday our choices. Have a great weekend.

      Of course if you'd like to bring a poem, that's great. We need to choose 3 mths worth of books and get to know each other. We want to start the new year off all on the same page and having time to get to know each other a little better will really help unify the group.

    Hi, what book are we supposed to have read for this next meetup?

    1 · December 30, 2013

    • laura b.

      NO book this month, but bring your one or two suggestions as we'll be deciding on our 3 month book list.

    Hi Ladies - I see the announcement for the next meeting on Jan. 16, but what is the book? Did I miss that somewhere on the web site? Sorry, first time navigating MeetUp today.

    • laura b.

      Hi Sally, sorry for the tardy reply. You didn't miss anything. The holidays got the best of me and I found myself disconnected. Please don't take it as the norm. There's no book this month. It's a meet and greet and book list discussion meetup. Please see my above comment. I'll be sending an email too.

    I'm tardy with the December summary, but there is NO book for January. The decision of those at our last meeting was to make January a book selection meeting and a meet & greet. We have a lot of new members which is very exciting and some former members returning. See Discussion section for more details regarding the December meetup.
