Next Meetup

"Sharp Objects" by Gillian Flynn
The restaurant is The 9th Monarch, the former Thai Place on Route 6 in Dartmouth. (634 State Rd Unit G, Dartmouth, MA 02747) Here's the book's summary from Amazon: Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment -- she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. Please change your RSVP if your plans change. $1.00 per participant to help cover Meetup dues is appreciated.

What we're about

The last page of a novel or memoir doesn't have to mark the end of the reading experience. Why not discuss it with others over a great meal? We'll read a book every five weeks and meet at a local restaurant to talk about what we liked, what we didn't, the author, the story, the subject matter, and maybe "who wants to share an appetizer?" We'll also vote on a book selection for the next meetup. We'll limit attendance to 12 people and see where things go. Life happens, so if you can't attend, please change your RSVP to "no." Habitual no-shows will be removed from the group. To help defray the cost of Meetup membership, $1 will be collected from each reader at each meeting. Come join us!
