What we're about

Welcome to the Millennial Book Club, a place for "millennials" on Long Island and surrounding areas to come together to read/discuss a new book each month! I'd love to see how many members we can get in order to get this group off the ground so we can really get going!

We plan to meet every third Thursday around 7:00 - 7:30 p.m. We'll decide the next book or two at each meeting and everyone will have a voice in each book choice. Please RVSP if you plan on coming, and if things change, please update as needed. As time goes on, it's my hope that we'll add events such as trivia nights, book signings, etc.

Since I'm a grad student and because Meetup does charge for use of their services, I'm accepting donations towards the continued running of this group. Donations are only that, donations, and they are not at all necessary to join in on a fun and stimulating conversation about all the good books or potentially bad books we may read.

In case of inclement weather aka really bad snow storms, please check to make sure that the group is still meeting. I will do my best to have a decision posted by 5 pm the day of the meetup. If the meetup is canceled, I will write a comment on the meetup itself and write canceled next to its title. Due to the challenging nature that is everyone's different schedules, having a makeup date is improbable. So the following meetup would then become about 2 books instead of 1.

CANCELLED - 2nd Attempt A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

Hey Everyone!!! Please Read!!! So here's to trying to start this up again! I hope everyone and their loved ones have been healthy & safe during this crazy time. I chose this book since we never got to discuss it. But if you have another book in mind this is the place to discuss it. I also chose a park on a Saturday to hold the meet-up. This is a tentative date and location. I want everyone to be comfortable, so I would also suggest you bring your own chair or blanket so we can all practice social distancing. If anyone has any thoughts, ideas, and/or concerns please reach out to me! A brilliant, unforgettable novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki—shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award “A time being is someone who lives in time, and that means you, and me, and every one of us who is, or was, or ever will be.” In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. A diary is Nao’s only solace—and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future. Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
