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.

November 2020 Book Club Brunch

Online event

Before the meetup we will read As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner. In 1918, Philadelphia was a city teeming with promise. Even as its young men went off to fight in the Great War, there were opportunities for a fresh start on its cobblestone streets. Into this bustling town, came Pauline Bright and her husband, filled with hope that they could now give their three daughters--Evelyn, Maggie, and Willa--a chance at a better life. But just months after they arrive, the Spanish Flu reaches the shores of America. As the pandemic claims more than twelve thousand victims in their adopted city, they find their lives left with a world that looks nothing like the one they knew. But even as they lose loved ones, they take in a baby orphaned by the disease who becomes their single source of hope. Amidst the tragedy and challenges, they learn what they cannot live without--and what they are willing to do about it. As Bright as Heaven is the compelling story of a mother and her daughters who find themselves in a harsh world, not of their making, which will either crush their resolve to survive or purify it.

Before the meetup we will read The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand. On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways. She didn't. And then she died. Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past. Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable. But this year, everything is about to change... Meetup Notes: Online Zoom Meeting. Please update your RSVP if plans change so we have an accurate count, thank you!
