We are a multi-ethnic book club and thoroughly enjoy books and food. Bookeating Wenches need to possess a voracious appetite for books and a discerning palate that goes beyond the realms of chain restaurants. A good sense of humor, an open view of the world, tolerance, and a “vive la difference” attitude is an essential requirement. We meet once per month in the Fort Myers area. We look forward to meeting you.
Our book selections can range from NY Times best seller, historical fiction, memoirs, thrillers, classics, to everything in between and future choices are chosen by our members. Each member will take turns picking the book, the restaurant, the date, and leading the group in the book discussion.
We require a profile picture so we are able to identify you at our events! Our membership dues are $10 annually to cover the cost hosting this club on Meetup.com, due within 14 days of joining us.
ATTENDEE LIMIT. Currently, we are limiting all in-person events to a max of 10 atendees. Meetup does offer a waitlist so if spots open up, members are automatically RSVPed to the event in the order that they joined the waitlist. Members will receive a notification if they are moved from the waitlist to ‘attending’.
RSVP. Members must RSVP to events in order to attend. ALWAYS RSVP on our Meetup Group event – even if you RSVP on FB! RSVP are open from event posting date and there will be no max attendee limit. If you cannot attend, you must change your RSVP at least 24 hours before the event to allow for the host to make reservation changes as needed depending on the restaurant. RSVP window will close 24 before the event as well.
NO SHOW POLICY. If you can't attend, please change your RSVP to No in the meetup event (not Facebook) you can also email/text Mari at least 6 hours before the event or it will be considered a "No Show". This encourages active participation and fairness to the hosts who organize each event. Members that have been a "No Show" for 2 events or more will be removed from the group.
