We’ve partnered with The Bookworm bookstore at Countryside Village, 8702 Pacific St., to offer women a new monthly book club. The first meeting is 7 p.m. Thursday.
We will read different genres, but will focus on books that are light, easy reads as most of us don’t have a lot of time to read.
The first book is “Good in Bed” by Jennifer Weiner. The novel features Cannie Shapiro, a 28-year-old writer in Philadelphia. Cannie is a typical twenty-something in her desire to lose weight, her frustration with her job, and her quest for love. Cannie is smart, sassy, and wickedly funny. She has a very supportive, if off-beat, family, great friends, and a loyal dog named Nifkin.
The book opens with Cannie reading a column in a national women’s magazine entitled, “Loving a Larger Woman” and is written by her ex-boyfriend, Bruce. Although the woman is only referred to as C, Cannie quickly realizes that the article is about her.
Make sure you tout that you’re a momaha mom at The Bookworm to receive a 20% discount on your book club books. We’ll also have a momaha book section featuring our book suggestions and a meeting space inside the store. Food and beverages are available for purchase at the Village Grinder, which is adjacent to The Bookworm.
