Let's Discuss: Seven Letters from Paris: A Memoir by Samantha Verant
Here is the summary from Amazon: Twenty years, seven letters, and one long-lost love of a lifetime At age 40, Samantha Verant's life is falling apart-she's jobless, in debt, and feeling stuck... until she stumbles upon seven old love letters from Jean-Luc, the sexy Frenchman she'd met in Paris when she was 19. With a quick Google search, she finds him, and both are quick to realize that the passion they felt 20 years prior hasn't faded with time and distance. Samantha knows that jetting off to France to reconnect with a man that she only knew for one sun-drenched, passion-filled day is crazy-but it's the kind of crazy she's been waiting for her whole life.

What we're about

This meetup is for anyone who is interested in coming together to form friendships and create a community with people who also happen to love books and enjoy discussing them in a positive and relaxed environment.

The books are open to all genres. Some of our reads will be 2nd releases. The hope is that by waiting until the book comes out in paperback, there will be copies available through the library and it will me more affordable.

You are also more than welcome to host your own book club meeting if there is something you are interested in reading and presenting to the group.

We understand that not everyone is able to finish the book before each meeting. Please don't let that stop you from coming to our gatherings. Our main goal is to get to know each other, get out of the house, and hopefully form some friendships. We have just decided to use books as a way to do those things. So we hope that there will be wonderful discussions that exceed just the book discussions but that will be our starting point for each meeting. We don't all have to like all of the books, or stop sharing because we didn't finish; however, we do have to respect each others opinions. That doesn't mean that we can't disagree. It just means that we do so in a mature manner. Anyone who is disrespectful will be removed from the group.

We can also use this meetup as a book exchange. Perhaps we will meet quarterly for a "What are you reading and book exchange?" Thoughts?

Questions? Please send a message to me.
