What are some of your favorite authors and book titles?

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald The Big Short by Michael Lewis The World According to Garp by John Irving All the Pretty Horses series by Cormac McCarthy Song of Fire and Ice series by J. R.R. Martin Belle Canto by Ann Patchett All over but the Shoutin' by Rick Bragg Like multiple books by most of these authors - not just the identified "favorite" books

What are your suggestions for future discussions?

I am open for new reading experiences, e.g., science fiction, Southern literature, historical fiction, biography. I recommend any of the above referenced books.

What evenings work best for you to meet?

Any evening; would just have to make a week by week decision.


I love books, smart discussions about them, and independent bookstores like Flyleaf. I moved to Chapel Hill from Indiana in 2009.

What Janna is saying about this Meetup Group

Always a good turnout of 10-18 folks - not always the same people. Some come for fiction reads while others prefer the nonfiction months [we alter between the two genres]. Very bright folks who offer stimulating discussion.
