Cape Coral Bookies
The selection this month is: Sweet Bitter by Stephanie Danler The bestselling novel about a young woman's coming-of-age, set against the glitzy, grimy backdrop of New York's most elite restaurants. Now a STARZ Original Series. Newly arrived in New York City, twenty-two-year-old Tess lands a job as a "backwaiter" at a celebrated downtown Manhattan restaurant. What follows is the story of her education: in champagne and cocaine, love and lust, dive bars and fine dining rooms, as she learns to navigate the chaotic, enchanting, punishing life she has chosen. As her appetites awaken—for food and wine, but also for knowledge, experience, and belonging—Tess finds herself helplessly drawn into a darkly alluring love triangle. In Sweetbitter, Stephanie Danler deftly conjures with heart-stopping accuracy the nonstop and high-adrenaline world of the restaurant industry and evokes the infinite possibilities, the unbearable beauty, and the fragility and brutality of being young in New York.

What we're about

The Cape Coral Bookies is made up of women of all ages and backgrounds who love books! We don't commonly hold our meetings at restaurants, as we've found them to not be conducive to a good discussion for a large and lively group. For this reason, meetings are usually held in a meeting room at the library (although we are always open to ideas regarding alternative locations).

The Cape Coral Bookies meet at 10 AM the 1st Saturday of each month for a little socializing and to discuss the selected book of the month. Even if you haven't had time to read the book, or found you didn't like the book and didn't finish it, we still encourage you to attend. We've found that some of our best discussions have been over those books which some members were not so fond of.

Once you join the group, contact the co-organizer Heather via Meetup chat and provide your email address in order to join our Bookies ( page, where you can learn more about the books that we are reading and the possible book selections that members may vote on, and to receive our monthly newsletter.

Happy reading!!!
