A book club for women who love reading books about or set in NYC! These will vary in genre from month to month...classics, memoirs, chick-lit, an entertaining non-fiction...the idea is that every book is somehow related to NYC! We'll gather together over cocktails/coffee/bevvy-of-choice once a month to discuss the book, and also try out a variety of NYC bars/cafes.
Who Should Join: Women who enjoy reading books on a variety of topics*, enjoy discovering new bars/cafes in NYC, and who want to meet other women! *also, who can commit to reading at least a decent amount of the book once they've RSVP'd. I'm sure we've all had the experience of being in a book club and being the only one to have read the book...makes discussion a wee more difficult;-)
Why You Should Join: To have fun (most important!), meet new people, and have a group of friends to discuss books with!
What Members Can Expect: A once a month meet up held at varying bars/cafes in Manhattan on a weeknight evening. Due to space restrictions in booking tables, the meet-ups will be capped at a pretty low number, making for a more intimate group.

For March and April's book club meetings, we'll do something have never done before...read a really LONG book, split up over two months! The book is A Little Life (https://amzn.to/2Ia6MCP). For April 8th's book club, please plan to read the whole book.
Here's the description:
A Little Life follows four college classmates—broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition—as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma. A hymn to brotherly bonds and a masterful depiction of love in the twenty-first century, Hanya Yanagihara’s stunning novel is about the families we are born into, and those that we make for ourselves.
And of course feel free to attend both months or one month, whatever works best for your schedule. Just remember to change your RSVP should something come up so members on the waitlist can plan to attend:-)
Look forward to seeing you all there, xo!
