Next Meetup

discuss current book selection: Providence of a Sparrow by Chris Chester
At our last meetup, our conversation was engaging as we discussed every day by David Levithan. We shared different views of the concept of waking every day as a different person and how the author handled the story line . It was written for a younger age group but the concept was interesting to consider what it would be like to have been born with such a life. We enjoyed getting to know more about each other as we discussed the book and shared our ideas, which led on to other conversations as well. Each of our meetings brings together some members who have been with us from the beginning and some new fellow travelers. For our next meeting we will meet at Lynne's home--the setting will be warm and the conversation will be intimate. There is such richness in the discussions we have with each other, this group of deeply thinking, intelligent and articulate lesbians. Each time we meet, we become a more intimate group of fellow readers and friends. We miss those of you who could not join us (and often ask about you by name) and hope you will come again, or for the first time. Our next meeting will be on Saturday, October 6th, from 4:30-6:00 pm at Lynne's home. We will be discussing Providence of a Sparrow by Chris Chester. Lessons from a life gone to the birds. This book was a winner of the Oregon Book Award for Creative Nonfiction. "Frank, humorous and often surprisingly insightful...Chester's affectionate description ...reads like an Ornithology 101 course delivered...by a boy completely smitten with a new best friend- The Seattle Times One of the interesting facts about him, is he lives in Portland Oregon. We would love to have you join us! You are welcome whether you have read the book or not--the conversation will be rich regardless. Each time we are joined by some who have not read the book, and they can attest that the conversation starts with the book and roams freely into the rest of our lives. Light refreshments will be provided and you are welcome to bring something if you wish. Any recommendations for future books to read is also welcome. Please remember to change your RSVP if your plans change. We would rather not limit the size of the meetup so it's helpful to know how many chairs we will need to set up.

What we're about

Interested in joining a book group for lesbians which meets once a month in the Portland area to discuss books with a spiritual theme? We're a group of intelligent, thoughtful and articulate lesbians of all spiritual leanings, ages and backgrounds who explore many spiritual paths and ideas through reading fiction, biography, poetry, and books by spiritual leaders. The word "spiritual" is broadly defined in our group. We try to read from all spiritual points of view. We will meet one Saturday a month (the date and book are chosen by the group at each meeting) from 4:00-6:00 pm in one of our homes, or at a community space. You can attend as works best for you--regularly or when the book appeals to you. During, around, before and after our book discussion, we also share intimate conversation about our lives and experiences. Is there anything more wonderful and powerful than intimate conversation about the things that matter most to us with articulate, intelligent and deeply thoughtful lesbians? I hope you will join us to form community wtih remarkable women. Your insights and presence will be a welcome addition. Each one adds her own personal gifts to our intriguing conversations and explorations. Come join us! Cher
