This is a group for women in their 30's-ish that live in the Portland, Maine area. It is a book club but also a place to meet and network with women, create friendships, and enjoy a few drinks. Books will be suggested by the group and can cover all different topics and types of books. I want this to be pretty laid back and a place to casually discuss the book, have some fun, a glass of wine (or four!), and make lasting friendships.
Because my goal is to create real friendships and a group that gets together regularly, please RSVP for all events-- even if you can't attend. I'll be limiting the number of women who join so that we can be a successful group. It should also be said that participation is expected. Members who don't attend a meetup within 6 months, regularly no show or RSVP will be removed. That is just to keep a small active group of women who know one another and have great conversation. My email is always available if anyone has ideas, suggestions or issues. I love hearing from you!!
I am thinking of starting with an every 3 weeks meetup which should hopefully give us enough time to read the book. I'm hoping to make it to every other week once we get a few more books chosen and planned so that there is more time to read but we can meet more frequently. I think we will switch off between Thursday night happy hour and a Saturday brunch.
I'm looking forward to meeting and cultivating a great group of friends (and reading some great books in the meantime!)
