What we're about
While it may not JUST be about a book; there is reading involved (usually) and this IS a book club. But, we hope to be a different kind of book club - one that is not so serious, one that involves an evening enjoying a meal or snack AND wine or beer while supporting a local business. And this is a very social book club. We try to talk about the book - but if you are looking for a club where the priority is focusing on the book - I can't guarantee that will happen. It's usually a large group - so often you will end up talking in a smaller group, where the book may (or may not) be the focal point.
We will be meeting the first Monday of each month (unless it's a holiday) at Fat Squirrel and what's great about that? It's $5.00 wine night and there are beer specials!
Rules of Engagement:
Books are chosen somewhat randomly. I listen to the conversations, look at the types of books people say they are interested in and tend to look them up on Goodreads.com. If it's highly rated - I try to schedule it in... While all suggestions are appreciated, there is no way we will get to all suggestions...
We respectfully ask anyone whose plans change to update their RSVP so we know how many seats we need, as well as allow Fat Squirrel to plan staffing appropriately.
Frequent no-shows or late RSVP changes may be asked to leave the group.
Men and women are welcome; but we are restricting membership to adults.
There is an annual $5 membership fee. This fee is used to help defray the Organizer Costs of having a group on meet-up. You can pay online, or you can let Alicia know and bring cash to the meet-up event.
Hopefully this is all pretty simple, and based on common courtesy.
The overarching goals for this group are to enjoy discussing a common book, making friends, and enjoying a glass of wine (or beer). Hope you'll consider joining us.
