Wisebird Book Club

Hey all!! I just got this email from Shanna:

“Just a quick reminder that we will be meeting next Thursday, May 26, at 6:00 to discuss “The White Tiger”.  I read it in one day…..could not tear myself away.  I loved the movie Slum-Dog Millionaire and this book was another glimpse of India.  Maybe that’s why I liked it so much.  It’s a quick read so it’s not to late to read it.  Even if you don’t read the book, I think you will like the discussion.  There are no spoilers because the “spoiler” is in the reviews at the beginning of the book and in the first few lines.  So join us if you can.

I am attaching an e-mail I received from Wisebird Bookery regarding Book Club meetings at Wisebird.  We need to talk about our options at the meeting next week.  If you cannot attend, please let me know by e-mail what your preference would be regarding future meetings.  See you soon.

Shanna”

Please join us for a fun discussion!

Love ya,

So, the crepes are becoming SUPER popular, (we’re having a hard time keeping up with all the orders) and just between you and me, I think if we can get just a TON of people to come in this weekend and next we might be able to convince Jen and Margaret to start offering them during the week!! PLEASE say you’ll join me in the effort to get them here all week long!

HEY BIRDS!!! I just got this email from Shanna, and I thought I would share with all of you:

“We met tonight and selected books for the next three months.  It’s a great mix that should make for some very interesting reading.

First of all, on May 26 we will discuss “The White Tiger” by Aravind Adiga.  It is a contemporary novel set in India.

On June 23 we will discuss “The 19th Wife” by David Ebershoff.  It is a novel about Brigham Young and a wife who divorces him with a murder mystery thrown in for good measure.

On July 28 we will discuss “Wolf Hall” by Hilarey Mantel.  It is historical fiction based in England.  It’s 1520 and England is a heartbeat from disaster.  King Henry VIII does not have a male heir….

Happy reading and hope we’ll be seeing you at our upcoming meetings.

Shanna”

REMEMBER! Everyone is invited to this book club! Just read the book and show up at 6pm on the given dates here at the Wisebird! Can’t wait to see you all.

Loveya, Jessi

Book Club Updates…

Wisebird Book Club will meet on Thursday, March 24 to discuss “The Invisible Wall” by Harry Bernstein.  The author was born in 1910 and wrote the book when he was 93 years old.  It is the true story of his childhood in a milling town in England where the Christians lived on one side of the street and the Jews on the other.  The book begins pre-World War I and is the first in a trilogy.

In April will discuss “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins.  This book is also the first in a trilogy.  “The Hunger Games” was written for a young adult audience but has become very popular with book clubs and adults of all ages.  Most of my married children and their spouses have read the series and my husband is currently reading the third book (a real rarity for him). 

Our April meeting will be held on Thursday, the 28th.  Both discussions will begin at 6:00.  We hope you can join us for the evening.

Shanna
