"Boys In The Boat" by Daniel James Brown & Happy 4th Anniversary, Ladies!
Happy 4 Years, Ladies Book & Explorers Club! What a wonderful group of women! Thank you for not only making our club a place to be exposed to new reading genres and exploring interesting places and events but meeting new people and making new friends! This month we will read Daniel James Brown, "The Boys In The Boat" and have a celebration at my place. Plan to bring food and or drink to share and for a fun and relaxing get together with games and frivolity! "The Boys In The Boat" - It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.

    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!
