What we're about

This group is for ladies in their 30s (plus or minus a few years) looking for authentic friendships with some really cool yet nerdy women. Some of us may be new to town, or maybe we're just realizing we need some more awesome, genuine friendships in our lives. You might be more inclined to enjoy some wine and a good book rather than go out. You might enjoy deep conversation over tea more than a night at a dance club. You might prefer to have 5 close friends rather than 20 acquaintances. If this sounds like you, you might have hit the nerdy friendship jackpot!

We try new restaurants, play games, watch movies, check out the arts and entertainment, explore the St. Louis area, and much more. If you have ideas, please email the organizer! Let's make this fun and keep it interesting.

Your Hobbies/Interests may include: NPR, knitting, reading, crocheting, quilting, tea and coffee, thoughtful, engaging conversations, learning, cooking, gardening, books, post-graduate studies, exploring nature...

You may describe yourself as: introverted, funny, cerebral, unique, intelligent, fun-loving, genuine...

You might like: movies, food, teahouses, art, book clubs, literature, museums, crafting, game or trivia nights, other cool/nerdy ladies...

Nerdy 30s Ladies of St. Louis is part of a large network of sister cities around the world! You can learn all about Nerdy 30s Ladies, see what other chapters are out there, buy merchandise, and see what trips are upcoming and more, all at www.nerdy30sladies.com.

The only real "rule" is that you keep your RSVP current. After three "no shows" (meaning your RSVP says you'll attend, but you don't show up) you will be removed from the group. There is a 90 day free trial to try out the group and see if you feel at home with these nerdy girls. After 90 days, it is $5/year to stay in the group.

May Book Club- I'll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

Our May Book Club will be online (I’ll post the link closer to the event). We will be discussing the true crime book, I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara. "A masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer—the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade—from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case. "You’ll be silent forever, and I’ll be gone in the dark." For more than ten years, a mysterious and violent predator committed fifty sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated ten sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later, Michelle McNamara, a true crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer." Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of eighteen and thirty, Caucasian, and athletic—capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim—he favored suburban couples—he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening. I’ll Be Gone in the Dark—the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death—offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman’s obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and an afterword by her husband, Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by Michelle’s lead researcher and a close colleague. Utterly original and compelling, it is destined to become a true crime classic—and may at last unmask the Golden State Killer." https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35068432-i-ll-be-gone-in-the-dark?ac=1&from_search=true&qid=e87lSeszUG&rank=1
