This is for people who are OVER THE AGE OF 50 because we've shared similar life experiences, lived through the same history, and are reading books with those similarities in mind. Not that you can't attend if you're younger but you may not understand our perspective. It is also a group for people who really do want to discuss the book - and be willing to go down the rabbit hole that those discussions can lead to. It is not for the faint of heart.
**I am going to add this because I think our group should come with a bit of a warning label.
We are direct, sometimes blunt, sometimes sacrilegious, sometimes there are curse words tossed into the mix (without apologies), we accept and listen to everyone and do not put anyone down for their opinions (but we will feel free to express our opposing opinion after you speak), we don't care what your sexual preference is - in fact, we usually prefer you just be who you are and don't need to be singled out, we are not necessarily PC and openly discuss issues that we face in our lives.
I feel that reading a book opens up many avenues of discussion - most of which will have nothing to do with the story. Those avenues - and what they bring with them - should have a place to be aired. That, I believe, is what book clubs are about.
