IBG Thursday Meetup - The Girls by Emma Cline

  • to
  • Needs a location

  • Hi all,

    Here's a synopsis of our next Thursday book.

    "It's the summer of 1969. In California, a young girl is unwittingly caught up in unthinkable violence, and a decision made at this moment, on the cusp of adulthood, will shape her life. In the summer of 1969, empty days stretch out under the California sun. The smell of honeysuckle thickens the air and the sidewalks radiate heat. Until she sees them. The snatch of cold laughter. Hair, long and uncombed. Dirty dresses skimming the tops of thighs. Cheap rings like a second set of knuckles. The girls. And at the centre, Russell. Russell and the ranch, down a long dirt track and deep in the hills. Incense and clumsily strummed chords. Rumours of sex, frenzied gatherings, teen runaways. Was there a warning, a sign of things to come? Or is Evie already too enthralled by the girls to see that her life is about to be changed forever?"

    Hope to see you then,

    Hi all,

    I'm really sorry but I have to move the Thursday November meetup. Please check and amend your rsvp accordingly. I hope you can all still make it. See you then, Hannah
