What we're about

We are a new-ish group of women of all ages interested in reading fantastic books and discussing them over a glass of wine with witty, thoughtful, and dynamic new friends.

We'll meet once a month to discuss a different new book, and I am always game to hear your suggestions for venues or titles. I, for one, am interested in reading substantive and compelling new fiction, particularly by women and people of color, but we can expand those parameters however we wish. The NYT Review of Books and reading lists from The New Yorker and NPR are my go-to's when I need a new title, and I'm looking forward to hearing your suggestions and expanding my horizons!

And since many of us have joined the book club to meet people and expand our social circles, we're not limited solely to book-discussion meetings - if you want to get together for drinks or a game night or just a quick walk, feel free to utilize the page to connect with people outside of our regularly scheduled meetings. Send us a message, post what you're up to on the discussion board, or contact me about setting up a new event.

Looking forward to entertaining and enlightening (and maybe a little tipsy) reading in 2018!

"Spinning Silver," by Naomi Novik

Needs a location

This is a bit off the beaten track for us (and for me!), but why not? The reviews are glowing: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/03/books/review/naomi-novik-spinning-silver.html and I'm all about something to help brighten the doldrums of February. If anyone is interesting in hosting our meeting this month, let me know (no pressure!); otherwise I'll announce a location when we get closer to the date.

"Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements"

From fairy tail remixes to science fiction short stories... This has been on my list since I heard Walidah Imarisha's conversation with Levar Burton last summer (LIVE! In Portland, from June 19th: http://www.levarburtonpodcast.com/?fbclid=IwAR03mbMK6zgwzOiEMm1lBuajcPdqUTYawowkXyYOdDryUDSOKmdOx4zADzA) and I do love a good collection of short stories. I'm looking forward to diving into it, and I hope you are too! Location TBD again, to create space for anyone who would like to host. Let me know, or I'll pick a place closer to the date!
