Announcing a new Meetup for The Pittsburgh Chick Lit Book Club!

What: Robinson Meeting - The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

When: Tuesday, June 29,[masked]:00 PM

Market District Giant Eagle
100 Settlers Ridge Center Dr.
Pittsburgh, PA 15220

For June only, we will meet on a Tuesday night due to an obligation I have on our normal night.

All of you who were at May's meeting - We had talked about having this on the 23rd but everyone who contacted me about the 29th said it was fine to have it then.

Our book for June is The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton. Here is a bit about the book:

Frankie, Linda, Kath, Brett and Ally meet each Wednesday in a park near Ally and Frankie?s home. It is there they talk about raising children and being married, until one day, Linda ? honest and direct ? pushes them to write, and thus begins the Wednesday Sister?s writing group?a place where each woman will discover exactly who she is and what she wants.

The Wednesday Sisters is set in the late 60?s ? on the cusp of the woman?s movement, in the middle of the civil rights movement, and during a time when traditional values began to be challenged. Meg Waite Clayton has given us five women, all different and yet similar?women with their own dreams, aspirations, doubts, and fears. Together they demonstrate what is best about women?s friendships ? gentle support, cutting honesty, and fierce loyalty. It is a time of growth, not only for the country, but for these women who have set aside their own dreams to support the dreams of their husbands, but who now want something for themselves. Along their journey the reader witnesses their struggles and sadnesses, along with their joy.

I think this book will lend itself to an interesting conversation about the change in women's roles from the 60s to today.

I look forward to seeing you there!
