What we're about

The East Bay Mystery Readers’ Group (EBMRG) is a fun, casual group formed in January 1994 and is looking for new members. However, we want members who will commit to attending the meetings. The group meets from 7–9 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at my apartment (ground floor so no stairs, but I do have two cats, come early to ensure parking). Therefore space is limited to a maximum of 14 attendees each month. Each month we discuss the three (3) books which had been chosen previously by the group. Some people will have read all three, some only one, and some haven't had a chance to read any of the books, but we still like people to come. RSVPs for each event are opened the Wednesday prior to the meeting. This is to prevent folks from RSVP-ing yes for events months in advance and then forgetting, which would take valuable spaces away from others who would like to attend.

Meetup groups cost money to run. Therefore, I do ask that members donate one or two bucks when they attend to help me recoup the cost of running the group. I shall be collecting $2 per meeting per person to cover MeetUp costs. By consensus of the group, in January, that will switch to a $20 annual membership fee (Meetup charges $120/year). But if you like mysteries, we're the group.

EAST BAY MYSTERY READERS' GROUP

Online event

During the time of COVID-19, our meetings will be held via ZOOM - PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LINK. However, we still request people RSVP through Meetup. Although we will discuss the three (3) books which had been chosen previously, I would ask that people email me their critiques PRIOR to the meeting in order to include them in the monthly recap. We then talk about what other mysteries each of us has read during the month and select books for future months. PLEASE: Do email your critiques on the current books for the month to me at [masked] PRIOR to the virtual meeting. Each month on the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to that month's meeting, you will receive an email notifying you that RSVPs are open, AND will provide you the information for joining the meeting. This helps us plan and know who will be attending. Please also let me know if you have to cancel. Information on the books selected can be found on our Goodreads group site at https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/2176-ebmrg on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/324828737616066/ and on our website at: http://www.ebmrg.org/index.htm If you join the EBMRG but don't attend for four consecutive months, or notify me of your situation and/or intention to attend, you will be removed from the group. As long as you've sent me your full name and email address, you will continue receiving updates on our book selections, group reviews, and LJ's monthly reviews. If your situation changes, you may rejoin. Do join us. We always have a fun, interesting time. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at (510)[masked]
