What we're about

Do you absolutely love reading but find it super difficult to set aside the time? Do you feel ten times better after conversation about concepts and ideas that lead to enlightenment instead of the usual petty gossip and small talk? Do you crave down-to-earth, positive, inspiring, and loyal girlfriends {a.k.a. sisterhood!!} to help you through this sometimes not so easy but also insanely beautiful at times life?? And most importantly {note: MANDATORY}, do you seriously love to wine and dine {responsibly, of course}!!?? If so... please let us combine all of the above into a ridiculously fun, genuine, classy, girls night in/out group on meetup.com by the name of {drum roll please...} the MADTOWN SUPER AWESOME SISTERHOOD WINE & DINE BOOK CLUB!!!! Sorry if it's a bit cheesy, but we are in Wisconsin, afterall :) Also... a tad bit about me and why I created this group: I moved back to Madison about a year ago to be close to my mom after finding out she had breast cancer. I was born and raised in Monona, but had no intention of moving back after 14 years far far away {I foolishly think of myself as a big city girl}. I'm a young (early 30's is still considered young, right???) professional in the health care field and also a single mom to a spirited 6 y.o. girl. I am insanely busy, and my boyfriend is truly a Godsend, but there is something missing. I need girlfriends. And I know you need girlfriends, too. So let's form a sisterhood!! :)

April Meetup: The Idiot by Elif Batuman

My humble abode!

From Goodreads.com: “Selin, a tall, highly strung Turkish-American from New Jersey turns up at Harvard and finds herself dangerously overwhelmed by the challenges and possibilities of adulthood. She studies linguistics and literature, teaches ESL and spends a lot of time thinking about what language – and languages – can and cannot do. Along the way she befriends Svetlana, a cosmopolitan Serb, and obsesses over Ivan, a mathematician from Hungary. The two conduct a hilarious relationship that culminates with Selin spending the summer teaching English in a Hungarian village and enduring a series of surprising excursions. Throughout her journeys, Selin ponders profound questions about how culture and language shape who we are, how difficult it is to be a failed writer, and how baffling love is. At once clever and clueless, Batuman’s heroine shows us with perfect hilarity and soulful inquisitiveness just how messy it can be to forge a self.” As always, please feel free to bring a bottle of wine or appetizer to share! :)

May Meetup: Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

My humble abode!

From Goodreads.com: “For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens. Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.” As always, please feel free to bring a bottle of wine or appetizer to share! :)
