Do you love to read thought provoking books? Does the thought of discussing them over a glass of fine wine fill you with joy and a sense that all is right with the world? Well we may be the group for you!
We are a welcoming group of individuals who meet each month to discuss, debate, laugh and share meaningful insights about our book of the month. Our members submit intriguing fictional and non-fictional book suggestions (recent releases as well as an occasional classic ) and new members often comment on how much they love our lineup. We also try to do a monthly social get together to promote friendship within the group. The people who join are bright, witty and have so many insights to share that it's a shame to limit our get togethers to just the book club.
Our meetup place of choice is Roberto's Ristorante at 483 Spring Rd. in Elmhurst. The wine, the small plates and the atmosphere, along with our monthly book discussions are truly to be savored.
We look forward to having new members join us. Please note, however, we are all about active involvement and thought provoking discussion. It is difficult to run a book club without that. Our expectation is that our members will attend at least 3 to 4 of our meetups or social outings per year. If this sounds good to you, we would love to have you join us!
***We have listed this meeting as an online event via Zoom. Please plan on joining us. Zoom meeting ID and password access information will be sent to all attendees before the meeting. Sign up to continue to share our joy of books and support of friends! ***
Please join your book club friends as we enjoy some wine and snacks and a lively discussion of the huge bestselling novel "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" by Gail Honeyman (350 pages).
As reviewed in Booklist:
“Move over, Ove (in Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove)—there’s a new curmudgeon to love. . . Walking in Eleanor’s practical black Velcro shoes is delightfully amusing. But readers will also be drawn in by her tragic backstory, which slowly reveals how she came to be so entirely Eleanor. Witty, charming, and heartwarming, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is a remarkable debut about a singular woman. Readers will cheer.”
