What we're about

Calling all women interested in meeting new people and reading and discussing books in the Beachwood, Orange, Pepper Pike, Mayfield, and nearby areas. We start every get-together greeting new attendees and sharing what is going on in our lives. We then begin our discussion from among a variety of thoughtful, engaging, provocative, and inspiring books. We are about having fun, encouraging ourselves to find more time to read, to relax, and enjoy ourselves with books, as well as to learn and grow in respectful, warm, and friendly exchanges.

Get Together & Discussion - The Fortunes by Peter Ho Davies

Beachwood Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library

Let's get together in June and discuss The Fortunes, by Peter Ho Davies.

Book Summary
Inhabiting four lives—a railroad baron’s valet who unwittingly ignites an explosion in Chinese labor, Hollywood's first Chinese movie star, a hate-crime victim whose death mobilizes Asian Americans, and a biracial writer visiting China for an adoption—this novel captures and capsizes over a century of our history, showing that even as family bonds are denied and broken, a community can survive—as much through love as blood.

Building fact into fiction, spinning fiction around fact, Davies uses each of these stories—three inspired by real historical characters—to examine the process of becoming not only Chinese American, but American.
