What we're about

Ladies who love to read: fiction and non-fiction, classics and current best, works that cover a broad range. An organized discussion is held over a relaxed dinner at a restaurant in the center of the Las Vegas valley, to give the best possible access to everyone. Ladies only—sorry, Gentlemen!
On occasion, we try to have an author come for a book signing and reading. Meetings are on the second Thursday of the month , unless a holiday conflicts.
Dues are $10. RSVP is required for each meeting, as number of attendees is limited in order to have quality interaction. Application for membership is limited to ladies who belong to fewer than 12 other Meetup’s. And yes, reading the book of the month is required! :-)

THE PARIS LIBRARY by Janet Skeslien Charles

Las Vegas Country Club

A sojourn to Paris just ahead of Valentine’s Day, especially to spend time in the renown Paris (American) Library, with thousands of 5 star ratings, sounds like heart and soul for Literary Ladies.

THE MASTERPIECE by Fiona Davis

Las Vegas Country Club

Fiona Davis is a best-selling, masterful author of historical fiction. In The Masterpiece, she takes us to New York’s Grand Central Terminal School of Art. Yes, it really was! In the stunning Art Deco architecture of Grand Central, art of every genre was taught until 1929, when the school was lost until it was again found until… Well, it’s a book that appears to remind us why we read. And love to discuss what we read!

THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD by Zora Neale Hurston

Las Vegas Country Club

Hurston’s book, written 85 years ago, has somewhat recently achieved its current status to be considered a classic and one of the best books of the 20th century. It’s intrepid in style, poetic and pensive, passages that one must stop to read…and read again. Often mentioned in our February book, hopefully it piqued curiosity in many of us…and will lead to one of our (as always) fabulous discussions.
