What we're about

Looking for other book lovers? A good story is even better when you've got friends to share it with.

I. The purpose of this book club is to provide a venue for people to express their views and opinions on various books that they have read. The club will read different types of books (ex: fiction, philosophy, poetry, contemporary, classic, memoirs, short stories, biographies, etc) each month. Members will meet once a month to have an open discussion on the selected book(s). (Each month a different member will be given the opportunity to pick their choice of reading material). The discussions will include a variety of questions and debates on the book, author, etc.

II. All are welcome to join. Our best meetings are when we have varied opinions and we rely on the experiences of all of our members to contribute to the discussion. There are no restrictions to join the book club.

III. If you RSVP "Yes" and your plans change, please be courteous and revise your RSVP to "No". Since we sometimes meet at a restaurant I need to close the RSVPs at a certain size and it is not fair to members who would like to come for a spot to go unused. Sometimes it is unavoidable that things can come up at the last minute, however, after three times of being a "no show", you will be removed from the group.

IV. Our book list https://www.dropbox.com/s/uh5233cmei5x3ku/Book%20list.xls?dl=0 is a list of books we have read and books we want to read.

July 2019 Book Club Brunch

Bertucci's Italian Restaurant

Before the meetup we will read Forever Summer by Jamie Brenner. Marin Bishop has always played by the rules, and it's paid off: at twenty-eight she has a handsome fiancé, a prestigious Manhattan legal career, and the hard-won admiration of her father. But one moment of weakness leaves Marin unemployed and alone, all in a single day. Then a woman claiming to be Marin's half-sister shows up, and it's all Marin can do not to break down completely. Seeking escape, Marin agrees to a road trip to meet the grandmother she never knew she had. As the summer unfolds at her grandmother's quaint beachside B&B, it becomes clear that the truth of her half-sister is just the beginning of revelations that will change Marin's life forever. THE FOREVER SUMMER is a delicious page-turner and a provocative exploration of what happens when our notions of love, truth, and family are put to the ultimate test Meetup Notes: Bertucci's will provide separate checks but it helps speed things up if you can bring cash and small bills so the wait staff does not need to get everyone change. Please update your RSVP if plans change so we have an accurate count, thank you!

August 2019 Book Club Brunch

Bertucci's Italian Restaurant

Before the meetup we will read Rust and Stardust by T. Greenwood. When 11 year-old Sally Horner steals a notebook from the local Woolworth's, she has no way of knowing that 52 year-old Frank LaSalle, fresh out of prison, is watching her, preparing to make his move. Accosting her outside the store, Frank convinces Sally that he’s an FBI agent who can have her arrested in a minute—unless she does as he says. This chilling novel traces the next two harrowing years as Frank mentally and physically assaults Sally while the two of them travel westward from Camden to San Jose, forever altering not only her life, but the lives of her family, friends, and those she meets along the way. Meetup Notes: Bertucci's will provide separate checks but it helps speed things up if you can bring cash and small bills so the wait staff does not need to get everyone change. Please update your RSVP if plans change so we have an accurate count, thank you!
