The Book Girls book club is a group of six female friends in the Clayton area who have been meeting since 2010, according to club member Nancy Stamper.
Tell us about your club. We meet once a month on Sunday afternoon in one another’s homes. Usually whoever hosts the meeting chooses the next book. We are very informal, and our hostess provides snacks. Sometimes we meet at a restaurant for a meal. We share our insights and sometimes answer generated questions about the book. If a book is made into a movie, we go see it. Every Christmas we have a cookie swap and exchange a wrapped used book.
What are you reading now? “Burnt Mountain” by Anne Rivers Siddons
What is your club’s favorite book? “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett
Never miss a local story.
What’s unique about your club? Our group started when one of us asked some of her friends and co-workers to form a book club. She met another member while standing in line waiting to receive their master’s degrees. Most of us are in our 30s, although one member is in her 50s.
How to join: If you’re interested in joining the Book Girls, contact Nancy Stamper, firstname.lastname@example.org.
