What we're about

Whether you are an avid reader, or US Magazine is your literature of choice, this book club is for you. I was doing some perusing through the various Meetup groups and saw that there was not a Meetup for GLBT readers. So, I thought rather than complain, let me start one of our own. My intention is that this book club be a place to ignite friendship, thoughtful conversation and an opportunity to connect over some really good books.

"The Guest List" by Lucy Foley (First Half - p. 1-155)

Lake View

For February, as we head into the depths of winter, we're keeping it light with a popular novel about a wedding party, resentment... and murder! It was also a selection for Reese's Book Club if that is fun for you to know.

So we'll discuss the first half February 2nd. Should be a fun time. I'll host at my apartment in Lakeview. RSVP'd attendees will receive the location via Meetup message prior to the event, so keep an eye on your inbox.

We'll also pick our next read at this meeting, so come with ideas.

*********************
"On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. The groom: handsome and charming, a rising television star. The bride: smart and ambitious, a magazine publisher. It’s a wedding for a magazine, or for a celebrity: the designer dress, the remote location, the luxe party favors, the boutique whiskey. The cell phone service may be spotty and the waves may be rough, but every detail has been expertly planned and will be expertly executed."

"But perfection is for plans, and people are all too human. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast.

"And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?"

This is the event where we'll discuss the "second half" or the book as a whole. Since there seems to be an element of mystery to this one, just be prepared that we'll be blowing it for you if you didn't finish the book. So you should either get to the end or not care.
