Book lovers and tea drinkers unite! (And coffee addicts too.)
I don't know about you but I love tea parties. Fancy hats, flimsy tea cups, tiny sandwiches--what's not to like? Let's get together and have afternoon tea while discussing our latest reads.
Every month we'll choose a book and discuss together during afternoon tea. We'll mostly meet in each other's homes (so if you'd like to host, please message me!) so we can discuss and chill in peace. Silly hats are required! But we'll also visit tea rooms, coffeehouses, go to events, readings, and other venues.
At each event, everyone can bring along a snack, sandwich, dessert tea leaves, etc. to share. I'll have a list of questions in case we run out of things to talk about, but we'll have an informal, chill atmosphere. Let's all have fun, drink tea, and talk about books. When in doubt, pinky out!
Join our group on Facebook--it's easier to vote for books and discuss business on there, yo.

For safety reasons and so we can recognize you, please have a picture of your face in your profile. You may be removed if you don't, sry.
Every group seems to have an attendance policy, so here's my obligatory finger-wag.
I'd like to keep this group small but active, so if you haven't attended an event for more than three months, please message me to let me know if you've got some things going on. Otherwise I will have to remove you from the group so that others can join our tea parties and discuss books with us.
NO TOLERANCE NO SHOW POLICY: I feel like I have no choice to do this due to so many people thinking not showing up is okay. If you can't make it, we totally understand, but please change your RSVP in advance, or let me know at least 24 hours before the event. This is especially important if it's a paid/reserved event. If you're a no-show at an event--you RSVP'ed yes, decide not to attend, and didn't let me know ahead of time, I'll have to kick you out. Due to most of our tea parties requiring reservations/payments in advance or being at members' homes, it's disrespectful to the host, organizer, and members for you to not show up, so I have a no-tolerance no-show policy. Thanks for understanding!
