What we're about

Welcome! We're a group of young women who get together monthly in a small group (10-15 ladies) to discuss a good book and enjoy some wine. We also occasionally have "no reading required" events in addition to regular book club meetings to include more members and try something new! If you're interested in meeting some new friends, please join us!

Fast Facts:

-Meetups are the second Wednesday of each month.

-It's not necessary that you finish the book by the meetup, but be prepared for some spoilers!

-Most of us eat dinner during the meetup, so feel free to come hungry.

-We're really a very fun and friendly group, so if you're on the fence, give us a shot!

Ground Rules:

-Members who don't attend a meetup after RSVP-ing yes and failing to change their RSVP to no will be removed after three such "no-shows."

-Inactive members (not in attendance at any meetups) will be removed after 6 months of inactivity.

February Meetup (The Hate U Give)

Ava's

Hi all! For February (Galentine's Day!!) let's meetup and read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas... "Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr. But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life. "

March Meetup (The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo)

Rosie's Wine Bar

Hi all, for March let's meetup and read "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" by Taylor Jenkins Reid... "Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn's luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the '80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn's story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways. Written with Reid's signature talent for creating "complex, likable characters" (Real Simple), this is a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means -and what it costs- to face the truth."

April Meetup (Misery)

Paragon Tap & Table

Hi all! For April, let’s meetup and read Misery by Stephen King... “Paul Sheldon is a bestselling novelist who has finally met his number one fan. Her name is Annie Wilkes, and she is more than a rabid reader—she is Paul’s nurse, tending his shattered body after an automobile accident. But she is also furious that the author has killed off her favorite character in his latest book. Annie becomes his captor, keeping him prisoner in her isolated house. Annie wants Paul to write a book that brings Misery back to life—just for her. She has a lot of ways to spur him on. One is a needle. Another is an axe. And if they don’t work, she can get really nasty.”
