Next Meetup

April book club: The Sympathizer: A Novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen
This month we are reading The Sympathizer: A Novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen. The event cost is $2 per meetup event to cover the cost of the group (Meetup charges about $20/month to groups.) We are meeting at Earl's on Campus. Look for cheap ($5.50) parking close to Earl's in the Timms, Education, and U lot. Book Synopsis: The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, as well as six other awards, The Sympathizer is the breakthrough novel of the year. With the pace and suspense of a thriller and prose that has been compared to Graham Greene and Saul Bellow, The Sympathizer is a sweeping epic of love and betrayal. The narrator, a communist double agent, is a “man of two minds,” a half-French, half-Vietnamese army captain who arranges to come to America after the Fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam. The Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.

What we're about

Public Group

Calling other readers! Meet kindred book lovers in a local Women's Meetup Book Club! Fiction, non-fiction, paperback, or hardcover...we read one book every month and get together to discuss our thoughts about it. This is a great way to meet new friends and laugh. In addition to the monthly book discussion, there may be times when a movie outing is listed or a wine tasting, or dinner, etc. We will meet once a month usually on the second Saturday of the month at 2 pm. At the meeting, we cover questions about the book that people had, any discussion points and exchange general chat. We have been meeting at various pubs/restaurants around the South side. The group is made up of a diverse group of women ranging in ages between 25ish-50s. If this sounds interesting to you, please join the group. Hope to see you at our next meeting. Cheers!
