Alta Vista Bookworms
Location: Alta Vista & CHEO area, Ottawa
Genres: Most genres including fiction, science, philosophy, fantasy, surrealism, historical fiction, best sellers. Probably not chick-lit, but also doesn't have to be sad or too serious each time.
Member ages & backgrounds: Welcome members of all ages, gender and from diverse backgrounds, but moms are especially welcome. If there is sufficient interest, I can also organize moms-only meetings, with the young ones joining in.
Looking for 4-6 members with interest in books, who would like to come together and share their enthusiasm for reading. The club will provide an opportunity to discuss your ideas and thoughts about your latest read with peers.
Meetings will be held at members' homes on a rotating basis or occasionally coffee shops on the 2nd Thursday of each month, in the evenings.
