Before you RSVP, please read this. There has been an issue with Book Club that is getting worse and worse. People sign up very quickly so the event "sells out" immediately. Then, they either cancel or no-show. I had 120 people RSVP for June. 40 showed up. 33 cancelled through eventbrite, and the rest just didn't show. I realize stuff comes up, but c'mon. It keeps a ton of people who would show up from being able to. I promise I know stuff comes up, but cancelling the day of or even the week of just doesn't allow anyone else to get and read the book in time.
SO I am asking that you please make sure you can 100% come before you RSVP. I will also be limiting the # of RSVPs per person to 2. AND if you do have to cancel, don't worry, because again, I know stuff does come up. I just assume it doesn't come up for 80 people usually.
I want to thank everyone SO much for throwing me a surprise baby shower this month! I had NO idea, and it was the sweetest, kindest thing ever! I am so blessed to have so many amazing women attend my book club. (and sometimes men)! THANK YOU! Also, we really enjoyed the June book "Educated".
In July, we're reading "Verity" by Colleen Hoover. We'll be meeting at the radio station on Wednesday, July 31st 6p-8p at (1600 Utica Ave S. St. Louis Park 5th floor-it's in the West End area). Dinner will be provided by Green Mill, and we'll have official book club t-shirts from MELSA! Plus, North Memorial Health will be joining us for a quick little "exercise" in the beginning.
If you read this far, then thank you. Tickets will be available at 10a this morning. Click here for them.
About the Book: Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.
Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity's notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn't expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity's recollection of the night their family was forever altered.
Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen's feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife's words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.
