What we're about

First off, this is NOT a serious book discussion club. It is a place for moms to meet and have something in common to talk about other than our kids. Sometimes we have discussion questions, sometimes not. We talk about the book, our families, the state of the world, work...life!

To join you should...

• Live in Orange County

• Be in your 30s or 40s.

• Be a mommy!

Some details about our club...

• Meetings are on Zoom due to COVID-19 until further notice.

• We have a core group of long-time members and welcome others that join us occasionally.

• Some of us have little kids and some of us have big kids- mostly school-age.

• Our meetings are monthly and go about 1.5 -2 hours.

• The books we read are well-reviewed, under 350 pages, and vary in genre from thrillers to self-help.

• If you didn't finish the book...NO WORRIES! Come any way but beware of spoilers!

When not in a pandemic...

we meet at First Class Pizza in FV or at someone's house (so the location changes, but will be central OC). Everyone brings food to share and a bottle of wine (if you wish to partake). Don't worry, you DON'T have to cook! You can totally buy something :)

If you'd like to host, please don't be shy, let us know! If you have a book in mind, that is great; otherwise, we take suggestions from everyone.

As a courtesy to the organizers and hosts, if you no-show 3 times or for a meeting, you will be removed from the club. It doesn't give others on the waiting list enough time to read the book and attend. We will "pass the hat" at each meeting to cover the cost of the website. ($100/year)

That's it! Hope to see you soon!

November Book - Welcome to the United States of Anxiety...

First Class Pizza

We moved the October meeting to November. We're looking forward to chatting about this book and catching up- in person! That's right, be brave, and join us for pizza on the patio. Also, the book is free on Amazon Prime Reads so check it out: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/?ASIN=B081Z29C6T&ref_=pe_625330_527566790# Here's a little about this book to get you started: New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster is here to help you chill the hell out. When did USA become shorthand for the United States of Anxiety? From the moment Americans wake up, we’re bombarded with all-new terrifying news about crime, the environment, politics, and stroke-inducing foods we’ve been enjoying for years. We’re judged by social media’s faceless masses, pressured into maintaining a Pinterest-perfect home, and expected to base our self-worth on retweets, faves, likes, and followers. Our collective FOMO, and the disparity between the ideal and reality, is leading us to spend more and feel worse. No wonder we’re getting twitchy. Save for an Independence Day-style alien invasion, how do we begin to escape from the stressors that make up our days? Jen Lancaster is here to take a hard look at our elevating anxieties, and with self-deprecating wit and levelheaded wisdom, she charts a path out of the quagmire that keeps us frightened of the future and ashamed of our imperfectly perfect human lives. Take a deep breath and her advice, and you just might get through a holiday dinner without wanting to disown your uncle.
