Triangle Reads: What local book clubs are up to

Writer’s Night in the Forest is a monthly series for avid readers in Wake Forest. Members read and meet with local authors in the Triangle, according to Suzanne Lucey, who started the group in May.

Tell us about your club. We meet the third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Renaissance Centre in Wake Forest. People are very excited to meet authors and find out the behind-the-scene stuff that goes into writing a book. We also learn about tricks for getting published and getting through writer’s block. We also have authors in the group who are excited to come talk with other writers. It is a wonderful encouraging community.

What are you reading now? “The Law of Forgiveness: Tap in to the Positive Power of Forgiveness – and Attract Good Things to Your Life,” by Connie Domino

What is your club’s favorite book? “Laughter, Tears and Braids: A father’s journey through losing his wife to cancer,” by Bruce Ham

What’s unique about your club? We average 50 people in attendance at our meetings. A special meeting planned for Feb. 26 will explore the history of Wake Forest with Carol Pelosi, author of “Connections – 100 Years of Wake Forest History,” and several local historians.

How to join: Meetings are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Renaissance Centre specialist Cathy Gouge at 919-435-9567 or
