Next Meetup

November Comic Book Club
This is a crossposted, coed group for discussion of a chosen graphic novel, like a regular book club. You don't need any prior knowledge of "comics" or "superheroes" to attend. TBH, we don't really read superhero comics most of the time. You can feel free to let anyone else who may be interested in joining know as well. The last book I have lined up for now (I'll post December as soon as I have it) is November's selection, I Parrot by Deb Olin Unferth. You can pick it up at the City library (one copy) or through Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Parrot-Graphic-Deb-Olin-Unferth/dp/1936787652 From the publisher: When Daphne loses custody of her son, she is willing to do whatever it takes to get him back―even if it means enlisting the help of the wayward love of her life, a trio of housepainters, a flock of passenger pigeons, a landlady from hell, a super-sized bag of mite-killing powder, and more parrots than she knows what to do with. I, Parrot, by acclaimed author Deb Olin Unferth with stunning illustrations by artist Elizabeth Haidle, dips into the surreal with poignancy and humor. In this riveting, funny, and tragic graphic novel, Daphne must risk everything. Her quest is ultimately a tale about civilization’s decline, the heartbreak of extinction, and the redemption found in individual revolution. We usually meet at Brian's 24 in the Gaslamp, but I think we can do a potluck at my house this month, in honor of Thanksgiving! There's plenty of parking and room for folks. PLEASE KEEP YOUR RSVP CURRENT! Especially when hosting at my house, I need to know how many chairs and how many to cook for. NOT FINISHING THE BOOK IS FINE, BEING A NO-SHOW IS NOT! Please comment with what you can bring!

What we're about

Sometimes being a geek girl is a lonely experience. It's hard connect with other women when they're staring at you funny because you're trying to explain your theory that the nature of a child's mutation stems partially from genetics as seen in Polaris and Magneto, but mostly from some sort of trauma before puberty - the time in which most mutants first exhibit abilities. Ex: Nightcrawler wanted to disappear because of his demonic appearance, and he did. You flashed 'em a little bit of your geek, and people just sidle away cautiously.

Not at this meetup. We LOVE your inner geek. We want you to pull it out of it's hiding place, doll it up and make it sing for our amusement. This is a place where you can meet girls who share your interest/s, socialize, have adventures and not feel ostracized.

Our main focus is to provide a safe social setting for geek girls of similar interests to meet and interact and hopefully create bonds of friendship that will last a long time. Our secondary focus is to have a blast! Geek girls of all ages, shapes, ethnicities and interests are welcome!

Please don't join if you are of the male persuasion – this is not a geek on geek dating service.

Also, Please have a clear photo of your face when you apply. Your application will be declined if you don't.

If you ever have an idea for a meetup, please feel free to post it in the Ideas section. If you have a location, time and date I'll post it right away. If there are still a few details that need to be smoothed out, I'll leave the meetup up in the air until it's worked out :)

I'm very open to people wanting to be assistant organizers or event coordinators. The difference is assistants help with many different meetups while coordinators will focus of their own. The more the merrier imo!
