The SWV NOW Book Club meeting (we discussed Negroland) was really good. Of course it was – these are good people. We ate, we chatted, we drank a little wine, we talked about the book. (Don’t tell my other book club, but this was more fun.) That was on a Thursday night. My other book club was meeting the following Tuesday to discuss Our Souls At Night, so I read my way through that, made a couple of notes, and then totally flaked on the meeting. I didn’t remember until the next morning. Maybe it’s a sign that I should just stop going to that one. I haven’t been since the end of March.
Back to the SWV NOW book club and how it’s just better: our next book, The Gate to Women’s Country, was my choice, and it really didn’t take much convincing to get the others to agree to read it.
I hope they like it. It’s one of my favorites. If they don’t like it, I might cry. I’ll certainly suffer from flashbacks to when my first book club didn’t like World War Z. Most of them didn’t even read it. Snobs.
