What we're about

Do you like meeting women from all over the Denver area to talk about books while enjoying wine and good conversation? Whether you're new to the area or a longtime resident, this book club aims to bring people of all types of backgrounds together to read books and talk about them!
Important note: This is the type of book club that actually reads the book and also enjoys wine and conversation. A typical meetup event looks like: quick introductions and rating of the book, about an hour to an hour and a half talking through questions about the book, spend the rest of the evening casually chatting with new and old friends. 

Like I mentioned, this group *actually* reads the book each month for thoughtful conversation (I'll prep 10-15 questions) but doesn't short itself on the fun times with wine and drinks wherever we meet! While you don't need to ever agree on liking the book, we all agree on reading the book before gathering together. 

Group Logistics:
• I'll do my best to have a few months worth of books published at a time. 
• Events open for RSVPs ~4weeks in advance and close when full. No wait lists. 

> • If the event you want is full, keep an eye out for people changing their RSVPs as we get closer to the event date. Drop outs always happen. 

• Event dues are to help offset the recurring costs of running a meetup. 100% of the event fees go to paying to keep this group active on MeetUp. 
Two no-shows will have you removed from the group. Each discussion is limited to a small number and we want to make sure those who truly want to be engaged have a shot at attending a discussion. 

> • A "no show" is not updating your RSVP from "yes" to "no" at least 36hrs in advance of the event date.

The Last Day - Andrew Hunter Murray

Needs a location


A visionary and powerful debut thriller set in a terrifyingly plausible dystopian near-future--with clear parallels to today's headlines--in which the future of humanity lies in the hands of one woman, a scientist who has stumbled upon a secret that the government will go to any lengths to keep hidden.

The world has stopped turning. The hunt has just begun.

It is 2059, and the world has crashed. Forty years ago, a solar catastrophe began to slow the planet's rotation to a stop. Now one half of the globe is permanently sunlit, the other half trapped in an endless night. The United States has colonized the southern half of Great Britain--lucky enough to find itself in the narrow habitable region left between frozen darkness and scorching sunlight--where both nations have managed to survive the ensuing chaos by isolating themselves from the rest of the world.

Ellen Hopper is a scientist living on a frostbitten rig in the cold Atlantic. She wants nothing more to do with her country after its slide into casual violence and brutal authoritarianism. Yet when two government officials arrive, demanding she return to London to see her dying college mentor, she accepts--and begins to unravel a secret that threatens not only the nation's fragile balance, but the future of the whole human race.

Lab Girl - Hope Jahren

Needs a location


Acclaimed scientist Hope Jahren has built three laboratories in which she’s studied trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Her first book is a revelatory treatise on plant life—but it is also so much more.

Lab Girl is a book about work, love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. It is told through Jahren’s stories: about her childhood in rural Minnesota with an uncompromising mother and a father who encouraged hours of play in his classroom’s labs; about how she found a sanctuary in science, and learned to perform lab work done “with both the heart and the hands”; and about the inevitable disappointments, but also the triumphs and exhilarating discoveries, of scientific work.

Yet at the core of this book is the story of a relationship Jahren forged with a brilliant, wounded man named Bill, who becomes her lab partner and best friend. Their sometimes rogue adventures in science take them from the Midwest across the United States and back again, over the Atlantic to the ever-light skies of the North Pole and to tropical Hawaii, where she and her lab currently make their home.

The Last Thing He Told Me - Laura Dave

Needs a location


The instant #1 New York Times bestselling mystery and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick that’s captivated more than a million readers about a woman searching for the truth about her husband’s disappearance…at any cost.

Before Owen Michaels disappears, he manages to smuggle a note to his beloved wife of one year: Protect her. Despite her confusion and fear, Hannah Hall knows exactly to whom the note refers: Owen’s sixteen-year-old daughter, Bailey. Bailey, who lost her mother tragically as a child. Bailey, who wants absolutely nothing to do with her new stepmother.

As Hannah’s increasingly desperate calls to Owen go unanswered; as the FBI arrests Owen’s boss; as a US Marshal and FBI agents arrive at her Sausalito home unannounced, Hannah quickly realizes her husband isn’t who he said he was. And that Bailey just may hold the key to figuring out Owen’s true identity—and why he really disappeared.

Hannah and Bailey set out to discover the truth, together. But as they start putting together the pieces of Owen’s past, they soon realize they are also building a new future. One neither Hannah nor Bailey could have anticipated.
