Join us for a romance read this February – “Book Lovers” by Emily Henry!

“Nora Stephens is a workaholic, cutthroat literary agent living in New York who is dragged into a monthlong trip to the picturesque small town of Sunshine Falls, North Carolina by her younger sister. Nora is very familiar with all the tropes about small town transformations and rom-coms featuring protagonists giving it all up for a simpler life, but Nora likes her life and job in New York.

But when Nora runs into Charlie Lastra — a handsome, no-nonsense book editor she knows from New York — in Sunshine Falls, she finds herself questioning many aspects of her life and realizing that she doesn’t know where this story is headed…”

Book Club – Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine

When: January 31st – 7 pm – 10 pm

Where: Diana’s House – 2241 Old Washington Rd

Join us for January’s book selection! “Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.”

Please bring a snack or drink to share. Hope you can make it!

September book club – “Humankind: A Hopeful History

When: September 21st 7 pm – 10 pm

Where: Lindsay’s house ( 109 Warwick Drive)

Kick off the school year with book club! Join us for a discussion of “Humankind: A Hopeful History” by Rutger Bregman.

Synopsis: If there is one belief that has united the left and the right, psychologists and philosophers, ancient thinkers and modern ones, it is the tacit assumption that humans are bad. It’s a notion that drives newspaper headlines and guides the laws that shape our lives. From Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Pinker, the roots of this belief have sunk deep into Western thought. Human beings, we’re taught, are by nature selfish and governed primarily by self-interest. But what if it isn’t true? International bestseller Rutger Bregman provides new perspective on the past 200,000 years of human history, setting out to prove that we are hardwired for kindness, geared toward cooperation rather than competition, and more inclined to trust rather than distrust one another. In fact this instinct has a firm evolutionary basis going back to the beginning of Homo sapiens.

Please bring a snack or a drink to share. Hope to see you there!
