What we're about

This Meet-up group is the solution to the dearth of Coastal North County reading groups which include men. This is a group for couples who would like to meet monthly to discuss a novel and the take aways which relate to today's world and national conditions and events. My wife and I envision:
* a group of 4 to 7 couples in their 40s to 60s,
* people still immersed in their work,
* couples attuned to unfolding global events within the context of history and the environment,
* folks who enjoy a glass of wine, a mug of beer and good food which they enjoy preparing, and
* those who listen, openly share but do not dominate a discussion. The protocol:
* agree upon three booklists from which to draw, such as the New York Public Library, the American Library Association and Oprah's book list,
* calendar the rotating homes for our meetings
* agree upon the elements of each monthly meeting, such as
- discussing the intriguing aspects of the novel, applications to past/present world conditions/events, plot and character development, language artistry
- hors d'oeuvres and beverages
* quarterly select the novels for the three months ahead,
* a volunteer will moderate/lead/launch each meeting's discussion, Who are we? We both are Southern California natives who each at some point attended school in Washington D.C. We live in Del Mar, work in coastal North County, enjoy a healthy lifestyle, music and reading. We are into good food, cooking and wine. Our home is warmed by Touche, a bichon/shih tzu mix. We follow national and world events. Lisa loves classical music and Jackson Browne. She works long hours as a project manager/senior data manager for a global contract research organization which runs pharmaceutical drug trials. Bill is into classical rock, the Dodgers and Chargers. He is an attorney whose practice serves business and family law clients. Shastina and her husband Tony have our first grandchild, Ryker Onyx.
