Here's the deal, I like big books and I cannot lie. I like small books too. No book judgement.
But more importantly, I haven't found a book club home yet due to scheduling conflicts or crazy locations that don't make sense for me.
So, here we are! Is anyone else in the same proverbial boat on the Westside / in the Culver City Area?
Let's get together on a dedicated night of the week (I'm thinking the second Monday of every month) for dinner or drinks, or both, but mostly to talk books and life and meet cool people doing cool things.
This group is for you if you too like books and to discuss books from all sorts of genres, enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, and sip easily on wine or cocktails or beer (or any types of beverages, really) whilst discussing books and chatting with people.
This group is not for you if you are closed off to new experiences or people.
Initial thoughts about logistics: 2nd Monday of the month, roughly 7:30 - 9:30 pm, most likely meet at a few bars / restaurants in rotation as we scope out a "fit", book selection by democratic process. Meeting locations will probably centralize around Downtown Culver City / Palms / Part West, and maybe into Mar Vista or Culver West from time to time.
Come read & drink with us! We will be off for the month of October, and will resume discussions in November. Because of that, we have chosen a larger book for the 2 month stretch!
For November, we chose to read New York by Edward Rutherfurd. "Edward Rutherfurd celebrates America’s greatest city in a rich, engrossing saga, weaving together tales of families rich and poor, native-born and immigrant—a cast of fictional and true characters whose fates rise and fall and rise again with the city’s fortunes."
We will meet again at Oldfield's for another round, in their back room. As a reminder, this meetup's intentions are to be out and about in the city, exploring new places for drinks and discussions about books. Oldfield's offers happy hour drinks until 9 pm and we can bring in our own food. It may not yet be our book club home, but we're going to give it another shot! Again, come read & drink with us!
Parking is in the lot behind the building, on Venice Blvd, or off side streets. Be sure to check parking enforcement signs!
