November: What Alice Forgot
For November we will read: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty Please note due to Thanksgiving we will meet on the 3rd Tuesday rather than the Wednesday, venue TBD. IMPORTANT: As our group gets bigger it is harder to hold a focused book discussion, I ask therefore that all that attend be prepared to talk about the book, and will respect others opinions by allowing one person at a time to speak and not split off into sub conversations. If necessary I may need to split the group into two for the book discussion, but would rather not if the venue and group allows. As always we will have plenty of time to socialize before and after the book discussion. A reminder about RSVP'ing. Please be considerate to others and don't hold a spot if you are not sure about attending, as changing to a no last minute does not allow people on the waiting list enough time to read the book. Please make sure to modify your RSVP no later than noon the day of the meetup so I can give the restaurant an accurate head count. ****** What Alice Forgot -Liane Moriarty 352 Pages (Amazon rating: 4.4) ** FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HUSBAND'S SECRET AND BIG LITTLE LIES.

So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over...
