September Virtual Meetup -- Fin & Lady

Online event

Seemed to work okay in August, so let's go again! September's book is Fin & Lady by Cathleen Schine: It’s 1964. Eleven-year-old Fin and his glamorous, worldly, older half sister, Lady, have just been orphaned, and Lady, whom Fin hasn’t seen in six years, is now his legal guardian and his only hope. That means Fin is uprooted from a small dairy farm in rural Connecticut to Greenwich Village, smack in the middle of the swinging ’60s. He soon learns that Lady—giddy, careless, urgent, and obsessed with being free—is as much his responsibility as he is hers. ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Meeting ID:[masked] Password: 2Gm9AV ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ No fees this time, as it's just an online meeting, though Meetup is still charging me, so donations to @RoseMEsposito on Venmo are always appreciated. But certainly not required. 😊

October Meetup — Rebecca (with ✨SPECIAL NETFLIX MOVIE TIE-IN EVENT!✨)

🚨 READ THE WHOLE MESSAGE Y'ALL 🚨 October's book is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier: The novel begins as our heroine is swept off her feet by the dashing widower Maxim de Winter and his sudden proposal of marriage. Orphaned and working as a lady's maid, she can barely believe her luck. It is only when they arrive at his massive country estate that she realizes how large a shadow his late wife will cast over their lives — presenting her with a lingering evil that threatens to destroy their marriage from beyond the grave ... Announcing this meetup ahead of time because this is a special one: we're teaming up with Netflix to celebrate the release of their new adaptation of Rebecca, starring Lily James and Armie Hammer! Here's the plan: ✨ The first 10 PEOPLE to RSVP win a free copy of the book! Make sure to message me directly with your info and say if you want a Kindle version, paperback OR audiobook. (If you're one of the first 10 and you don't message me, I'll assume you don't need a copy) ➡️ Well, this went fast! 10 have been CLAIMED, but if anyone deletes then I'll update here. More prizes to come at the event! ✨ The movie will come out on Netflix on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21st, so make sure to watch it before the meetup on Sunday! (If you want. You can join us either way, but you should!) ✨ On the 25th, we'll chat about the book and the movie, AND there will be a raffle and book/movie trivia questions with PRIZES provided by Netflix! Yes, prizes! ✨ (And yes, you should also check out the 1940 movie because it's awesome) ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ Meeting ID:[masked] Password: 8TLKTN ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ 100% free to join and attend, though Meetup is still charging me a biannual fee, so donations to @RoseMEsposito on Venmo are always appreciated.
