What we're about


If so, then we'd love to have you become a member of The Bookies!

We are a diverse group comprised of young, in between, old, male, and female members. Our meetings are held once a month (the third Monday) at Earth Fare, Turkey Creek, in West Knoxville.

At each meeting we discuss our current selection and pick the next book for the upcoming month. Even if you do not get a chance to read or complete the book, do not hesitate to come and enjoy the discussion.

Most importantly, we have fun!

There is no membership fee and our only requirement is to have fun meeting new people while discussing our current book selection. We do not host online discussions of our selections.

' The President Is Missing" - James Patterson/Bill Clinton

Facilitator: Donna Hollis The President Is Missing confronts a threat so huge that it jeopardizes not just Pennsylvania Avenue and Wall Street, but all of America. Uncertainty and fear grip the nation. There are whispers of cyberterror and espionage and a traitor in the Cabinet. Even the President himself becomes a suspect, and then he disappears from public view . . . Set over the course of three days, The President Is Missing sheds a stunning light upon the inner workings and vulnerabilities of our nation.

' Tattoos on the Heart' - Gregory Boyle

Earth Fare

Facilitator: Cathy McKeown For twenty years, Father Gregory Boyle has run Homeboy Industries, a gang-intervention program located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles—also known as the gang capital of the world. In Tattoos on the Heart, he has distilled his experience working in the ghetto into a breathtaking series of parables inspired by faith. This is a motivating look at how to stay faithful in spite of failure, how to meet the world with a loving heart, and how to conquer shame with boundless, restorative love.
