What we're about

Enjoy finding a new book to get lost in, fun gals to discuss it with and some wine to toast to both? Then, let's "meet up" the last Wednesday of the month and talk about some good fiction. Book clubs have been a great way for me to meet and spend time with wonderful women and to explore novels with others who love to read.

A few logistics: this will be a group for women only and we do have a no show policy (please see below). Our meetings are typically the last Wednesday of the month (excepting any holidays) and we meet at Grillsmith in Carrollwood.

Please Read :: No Show Policy

Women Words and Wine continues to grow as we are seeing record numbers with RSVP’s to our events. As organizers, this is a very exciting trend. January, February, and March all have full RSVPs to attend and we also have long waitlists as well.

Another not so exciting trend is that less than half of those who RSVP each month actually attend the meetup. And since we have waitlists of 10 to 15 ladies, when RSVPs aren’t updated to a No, it means that someone doesn’t get the chance to attend.

For these reasons, we have decided to implement a No Show Policy for this group. Starting with the February meeting, after any member has two consecutive No Shows, she will be removed from the group. We want to be respectful of everyone who wants to attend and we want to be respectful of the space we reserve at Grillsmith every month.

It is considered a No Show if you RSVP Yes that you will attend the meeting, but do not attend, and do not update your RSVP to a No. We do understand that life happens and your plans can change last minute -- just send one of the Admins a message or post in the meeting if this is the case. We can always update your RSVP for you and this way we know who to expect. Ideally, RSVPs should be updated at least 24 hours in advance, so that those on the waitlist have a chance to attend. More than three day-of cancellations will also be cause for removal from the group.

Thank you in advance for helping keep our group fun and well-organized for everyone!

Cheers! Andrea

Most guys might end up with a steamy affair and a flashy car for their midlife crises, but George gets a quirky philosophical physics professor named Shiloh. Trapped with this mysterious misfit on his morning commuter train, George is dragged into awkward conversations about love, fear, music, and the meaning of life. Shiloh also asks George to beta-test an app he wrote for the new Apple Watch—and with a free watch included, how could he say no? When tragedy strikes, throwing George out of his uncomfortable comfort zone, he learns that Shiloh’s app lets him journey through alternate versions of his past. As challenges mount in his own reality, George must make a decision that will change him—and possibly the entire multiverse—forever.
