What we're about

My Sisters Book Club will typically meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 pm to discuss thought-provoking literature, enjoy food and/or adult beverages, and have a great conversation. The focus of this book club is to enjoy the company and perspectives of other women while exploring and appreciating literature.

Processes:

Every other month we open the meeting for three new members. New Member attendee months for the next year are as follow:

August 2021

October 2021

January 2022

March 2022

May 2022

July 2022

After your first book club meet, you are automatically able to RSVP without a waitlist to future meets until we get to a max of 20 attendees.

After attending previous book club meetings, new members are eligible for special events such as events at personal homes, movie viewings, or restaurant dinners.

Our objective is to continue building our sisterhood while maintaining and strengthening our current group's bonds.

Book Selection: Each month during the meet-up, we vote on what we will read for the next meeting. Any member present or not may submit a book to be included in the vote. Whatever book wins the book we read. A tie may be broken, or the alternate book is designated for the following month at the group's discretion.

Meeting Schedule and Book Announcement:

Within three days of the meeting, I will post the next meeting date and the book selected on Meetup. Each person who RSVP's will be automatically placed on the waitlist, but current members will be removed as their place has been held. During the months that we accept new members, new members will also be removed from the waitlist based on the order of the RSVP.

Let's Meet up & Discuss "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Riveting, heart-wrenching, and full of Old Hollywood glamour, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is one of the most captivating reads of 2017.” —BuzzFeed

“The epic adventures Evelyn creates over the course of a lifetime will leave every reader mesmerized. This wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet and her tumultuous Tinseltown journey comes with unexpected twists and the most satisfying of drama.” —PopSugar

In this entrancing novel “that speaks to the Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor in us all” (Kirkus Reviews), a legendary film actress reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

“Heartbreaking, yet beautiful” (Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is “Tinseltown drama at its finest” (Redbook): a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it costs—to face the truth.
