August Meetup: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
From Goodreads.com: “Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads: Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?). Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.” As always, please feel free to bring a bottle of wine or appetizer to share! Excited for everything August brings!! :) Many Blessings, Jaclyn & Lori

    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!! :)
