Do you like wine? Do you like reading? Well then you're in the right place! : ) We are a fun, accepting, respectful group - we meet at a wine bar in Highwood, IL - they have amazing wine (obvi), and delicious food. There is no fee to join this group, but there is a $15/person minimum purchase at each meetup (we're offered a beautiful private room at *no charge*, so really, it's the least we could do to support local!) : )
We are focused on having monthly book discussions, but we don't take ourselves too seriously! If you didn't get to reading/finishing the book - that's ok! You're still welcome to come to the meetup and join the discussion, just know there will be "spoilers" as the book will be talked about. We're all about meeting new people and having fun.
The books we read are voted on in-person at the book discussion meetups 2 months out. Members post suggestions on the Discussion Message Board (the thread titled "Book Suggestions") - this is a running list of ALL suggestions made (not genre specific). At the meetup, we put all suggestions in a hat and pull out 5. Those 5 are then voted on by the attendees. This encourages suggestions, planning, and attendance! : ) (example: At the February meetup, we vote on the April book). You can add suggestions any time, but please note that any suggestions made the *day of* the meetup will be on the list for the following meetup (so the organizer has time to prepare the list for the event).
No-shows and last-minute RSVP changes are *not* fun (and terribly difficult to plan around). Please be courteous and keep your RSVP updated.
