What we're about

Join our Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/124113-l-a-literature-enthusiasts) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1779551618769176/) pages!

Do you love reading as much as we do? Do you find yourself finishing a book and wanting to share the experience? Do you miss the student experience of reading a book and discussing the deeper meaning and implications with a group?

We meet once a month, usually in private homes where we share a delicious pot luck buffet, to discuss our latest selection. The location varies, but is generally in the Santa Monica/Westwood area. If this sounds like you, join our book club!

The Women of the Copper Country by Mary Doria Russell

Online event

Click here to read about this book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/42201959.The_Women_of_the_Copper_Country

If you'd like to join us, please RSVP and we'll send you the Zoom link and other details by Sunday morning. Please be sure to check your spam or junk mail folder, since Meetup messages often end up there.

Note: if you sign up and don't get the message, please email me at [masked] at least an hour before the meeting time. If you wait 'til the meeting has begun, I may not see your message in time to respond. I have no way to know if the site sent the notice to you and I don't have your direct email unless you contact me. Please read this: https://www.meetup.com/Los-Angeles-Literature-Enthusiasts/messages/boards/thread/50155115 if you're not getting messages in general.

We track no-shows! We hope to see you, but if your plans change, please be considerate and change your RSVP on the event page as early as possible so someone on the waiting list can take your place. (This means clicking on the "X" button under "You're Going." No need to explain, but if you do, please don't just post a message, since if you don't change the RSVP, it still shows you as attending and holds the spot.) If you fail to show up more than once, and don't bother to change your RSVP, you will be dropped from the group and not allowed to sign up for future meetings.

And if you're not already a member, please join our discussion group at: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/124113-l-a-literature-enthusiasts and help us choose books to read at future meetings.

Since this will be a potluck, if you're planning to attend, please let us know what kind of food you plan to bring (side or main dish, salad, bread, dessert, etc.) in the comments section. I'll send you the address about a week before the meeting.

Note: if you sign up and don't get an email with the location and details within the week before, please let me know at [masked]. I have no way to know if the site sent the notice to you and I don't have your direct email unless you contact me.
