This is a book club for moms. Our goals are to create and contribute to an intellectual discussion of books while also socializing and meeting new friends. We meet once a month though members are not required to attend every meeting. The type of books we read is driven by suggestions from our "Reading Mamas." In the past we have read a lot of fiction; some historical, and some relating to current events. Once or twice a year we dabble in mystery and satire.
Past titles that we have read include:
Still Alice, by Lisa Genova
Breaking Night, by Liz Murray
Bringing up Bébé, by Pamela Druckerman
Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd
Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand
A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini
New members are given a free, 60 day trial of the group so you can determine if the group is a fit for you. After 60 days, you will be required to pay membership dues before you can attend another meetup. Dues are $15.00 annually and are used to pay hosting fees to Meetup.com. We try to keep our membership under 50 members so we don't have to increase dues. For this reason you will be removed from the group if you have not paid and have never attended a meeting after several months.
