2nd WEDNESDAY BOOK AND LUNCH GROUP August 8th 11:30-1:30 Via Ventura Apartments Clubhouse. ATONEMENT by Ian McEwan. Green salad with fruits and veggies to add in will be provided. Please bring a dessert or snack to share and your beverage. "Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose. On a hot summer day in 1934, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’s incomplete grasp of adult motives—together with her precocious literary gifts—brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece..."

What we're about

Welcome to Camarillo Book Club. A book club is a great way to meet new people that have a shared interest: reading! Our goal is to have this club be member-run. We're a friendly group and welcome your suggestions for books to be read, movies to be seen, etc. As we grow, we look forward to adding additional meeting nights so everyone has a chance to participate. If you have an idea for a group, don't hesitate to contact me! I'll be happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have about hosting a group discussion.

When you join, please include a profile picture so that we can recognize each other at our events. We do have minimal dues of $5.00/year to help offset the yearly fee charged by Meetup. There is a 14-day trial period from the date you join before payment is required. You can then either pay me directly or use the convenient online payment option.

Our attendance policy is simple:

• Don't sign up unless you're certain you'll be able to attend a meetup.

• If you do sign up and your schedule changes, please change your RSVP.

• 2 no-shows and you may be bumped to the waitlist for future meetups.

• 3 no-shows and you may be dropped from the Book Club.

Can't wait to meet you!
