What we're about

Welcome to all you ladies who are 40+! It is your time to get out of the house and expand your mind with some great literature and food for thought! We are here:

*to share your thoughts and ideas over a book that you HAVE to talk about
*to start reading all those books you've been wanting to read
*to read a book that goes deeper than the latest fluff
*to get out of the house to have an adult conversation
*to start new friendships

We will meet once a month at varying locations in the South metro to discuss our monthly book choice. I have found it best to discuss books at our homes so we can actually hear the discussion and not be rushed by time. Our book choices will range from classic literature, current best sellers, and cult favorites. Some of my favorite reads have been from a genre I would not have tried. Do you need to read the book to show up? um, yes. A book club is served best when everyone has read the book, however, you will get one "free pass" a year, or maybe two if you bring wine!

So let's open the pages and start The New Chapter!
