Did you know that a woman wrote "The Talented Mr. Ripley"? Do you always make a mental note, "I should read that" when you come across a reference to Maya Angelou, Toni Morrison, Isabel Allende, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Sylvia Plath, Margaret Atwood, and others? Have you read anything by Donna Tartt, Jennifer Egan, Elizabeth Strout, Geraldine Brooks, Marilynne Robinson, or Jhumpa Lahiri who are Pulitzer Prize winners going back to 2000? Are you a fan of the work by non-fiction writers like Brene Brown, Cheryl Strayed, Esther Perel or Carol Dweck?
This book club is focused on books written by women - both fiction and non-fiction - and is open to everyone who is interested in discussing their works.
Here is are the organization basics:
1. Meet twice a month.
2. Members send in prioritized recommendations of what they would like to read to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. I will consolidate and publish the results so that we have the reading list for the next few months.
Note: if you are wondering why there was a past meetup for Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, clearly not a woman, I am reorganizing a former book club that I started a few years ago.
