Looking to start a small group of women (25ish-39ish) who enjoy good literature, good food, good drinks, and good conversation. Meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month. We meet at a great restaurant, talk about the book, life, work, etc. Its a great chance to meet new people, network, socialize, etc. If you're interested, send me an email with some info about yourself..
We are an established book club that has been meeting since the early 2000's. Our membership is made up of women in their late 20's through early 40's who live or work in the city. Our members are married or single, some have kids and others do not. We meet once a month to socialize, eat, and discuss our monthly book selection. We typically meet on a Tuesday evening at a T-accessible restaurant in Boston or Cambridge.
Some of our books from last year were: The Short & Tragic Life of Robert Peace, The Girl on the Train, Brain on Fire, Patron Saint of Liars, The Rosie Project, Where'd You Go Bernadette, and Wild.
Our next meeting is in early May 2015.
