We are a group of women over 50 who live in the Belmont Shore/Long Beach area that love reading good literature and enjoy making new friends. We meet once each month (on the second Friday of the month) at a location within our community (or could be a member's home) for an afternoon of lunch, socializing and book discussion. I'm excited with the potential of this group for making new friends - all of who find joy in reading books of all genres, meeting new people and just having fun. This is a book and social club of 12 - 15 diverse women. Your commitment to actively participate is critical to the success of our club. This includes recommending book selections, reading selected books and being prepared for book discussions, sharing and staying involved. Even if you didn't quite finish the book you will still enjoy the company, and you may find a reason to go back and finish that book after hearing what the group has to say! PLEASE NOTE: In order to keep our group number manageable, membership is currently closed. However, please "join us", once you've completed your profile (including your full name and a photo of yourself), you will be added to our wait list. When we have any turnover, members will be added from that list chronologically.
