What we're about

This is a group for anyone that loves to read, and loves local restaurants! Once a month, on a Sunday afternoon, or a weeknight evening, we will all meet at a local restaurant to eat, drink and discuss! Every month we have a different theme, and everyone is welcome to bring books or restaurant ideas to suggest for the next meetup. After the discussion is over, we will all vote on a new book and get reading again!

This group is extremely social, and welcoming. We often meetup at one restaurant, and discuss the book for a little while, and then move on to another bar or another restaurant...and don't necessarily keep the discussion focused on the book. While reading the book is encouraged, everyone, no matter how far you got in our month's book, is welcome- especially if it's your first meeting. We love to have new faces, new stories, and new insights!

Our themes 2021 themes will be:

Jan: book from book exchange
Feb: psychological thriller
Mar: Magic/Fantasy
April: alternate reality May: Heroism real or perceived
June: traveling/going on a journey

August: mystery

“This is Where I Leave You” by Jonathan Tropper at Taqueria

Taqueria El Maguey

For this month’s theme of book into a movie, we chose the book “This is Where I Leave You” by Jonathan Tropper. A book about love, marriage, family, divorce, secrets, and drama!

We will be meeting at Taqueria El Maguey in Modesto. I have never been- but it looks cute! If anything changes I will let everyone know!

We will be meeting in early December because thanksgiving is messing with us! But, this will be the last book club for the year! Later in December we will also have a holiday party- so keep your eyes out for that invite!

If you have any questions, let me know!
