Hey ladies who love to read: Let's pick a (hopefully) great book, read it, and then get together to drink some beer and talk about it. To give you a sense of what I like to read, here are the last 3 books I've read and loved: Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson, and The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Here are some specifics about how our group works:
We usually meet in the back yard at my place. I send the address out a couple days before the meeting to those who have RSVP'd. I'm in Santa Monica right off the 2nd Bundy exit from the 10. My dog, Wilfred, joins us so if you're allergic to or scared of dogs, this might not be the club for you!
At every meeting, I write down everyone's book ideas and pick my three favorites. I then set up a poll on the meetup website so everyone can vote on their favorite among the three. We usually pick our books a couple months ahead.
The meetings are byob and I try to pick a new beer theme for each month. People usually bring a six pack so they can share with others and try different beers, but you certainly don't have to. I provide light snacks.
We had so much fun watching Crazy Rich Asians, I figured it’s time for another movie night!!
Join us at Cinemark in Playa Vista, we’ll grab some reserve level seats (literally the only way you should watch movies!) and enjoy Where’d You Go Bernadette. ***Reserve level seats come with a small popcorn.
I’ll buy tix for everyone before the movie that way we are all sitting together. You can Venmo, PayPal or give me cash at the movie. Just make sure to change your rsvp if you can’t make it so I’m not stuck paying for extra tickets.
Let’s meet upstairs at the bar before the movie.
