What we're about

We are back!

We will be hosted by The Rosa in Portsmouth with a strict limit of 30 people. I welcome all who feel comfortable attending!


Our book club is monthly, very relaxed and sociable. Come on by! We meet the second Tuesday of every month.

If you have not read the book but would still like to visit, please feel free to meet up with us anyhow. I get this question a lot. We would love to have you come on by and meet with us so you can get a good feel for the club. There have been times when I have not finished the book! Don't worry about it.

The location of our meetings changes month to month so check the location right before the meeting! Enjoy a beer, good food and great conversation.

Heck, make it a few beers.

The Portsmouth Book Club February - The Expats

The Rosa Restaurant

The February pick for THe Portsmouth Book Club is The Expats by Chris Pavone. Here is the description:

Kate Moore is an expat mum, newly transplanted from Washington D.C. In the cobblestoned streets of Luxembourg, her days are filled with play dates and coffee mornings, her weekends spent in Paris or skiing in the Alps. Kate is also guarding a secret - one so momentous it could destroy her neat little expat life - and she suspects that another American couple are not who they claim to be; plus her husband is acting suspiciously. As she travels around Europe, she finds herself looking over her shoulder, terrified her past is catching up with her.

As Kate begins to dig, to uncover the secrets of those around her, she finds herself buried in layers of deceit so thick they threaten her family, her marriage and her life.

A thrilling debut-to-remember, Chris Pavone's The Expats will keep you guessing until the very end.

The Wind in My Hair: My Fight for Freedom in Modern Iran by Masih Alinejad
