See you at the party! _________________________________________________________________________________ "Homegoing", Yaas Gyasi Ghana, eighteenth century: Two half sisters are born into different villages, each unaware of the other. One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village, imprisoned in the very same castle, and sold into slavery. Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations: from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi, from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi’s extraordinary novel illuminates slavery’s troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed—and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.

What we're about

Do you like to read and welcome a diverse assortment of book genres? Do you enjoy refreshing drinks, delicious meals, exploring local establishments, venues, events and activities? Are you looking to meet new people and make new friends?

This Meet Up group is focused on allowing ladies to meet and discuss books while enjoying some of the above activities (but not limited to the above activities!) while discussing the group's book of the month.

Didn't get a chance to read the current book? That's okay, we would like to see you anyway. We are a friendly and inviting group and will make you feel welcome, so don't hesitate to join the fun!

There are even gatherings where books aren't brought up at all and we will just be out exploring...

Most meetings will take place in the general vicinity of Altamonte Springs and surrounding area (Lake Mary, Winter Park, Maitland, Orlando, Casselberry, etc.).

How we choose our books and calendar of events: During each monthly book club meeting, each lady present makes an anonymous suggestion for the next month's Book, Book Review Venue and Exploring Destination. We draw... and voila - There you have it! Our next schedule of events has been determined. Sometimes we add events that just seem fun to our calendar as well.

Take a look at the Events Page for detailed information on our current book and venue of the month.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events!
