We read mostly contemporary literary fiction, national and international, and some memoir or biography; and we're open to any type of book that interests enough of us. We don't use a list of discussion questions, we just go around the table and each person gives their basic thoughts, then discussion of various elements of the book flows from there. The talk is lively, thoughtful, and always friendly. We choose books at six month intervals using a group suggestion and voting process. Now in our third year, we are looking to add to our solid core of regular attendees. All readers are welcome to join, and we would love to see you at our next Meetup.
Dora and Nora Chance are a famous song-and-dance team of the British music halls. Billed as The Lucky Chances, the sisters are the illegitimate and unacknowledged daughters of Sir Melchior Hazard, the greatest Shakespearean actor of his day. At once ribald and sentimental, glittery and tender, this rambunctious family saga is Angela Carter at her bewitching best.
