Join us on the first Tuesday of each month to meet others who enjoy reading, share ideas, have lively conversations and make new friends. Everyone welcome. Coffee and tea provided.
Date: first Tuesday of each month from 6:30-8 pm
Location: Oaklands Neighbourhood House, 2629 Victor Street. Please note the next meeting is on Tuesday, September 3.
September's book selection is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
From Good Reads:
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
The only way to survive is to open your heart.
Please join us for a discussion at our next meeting on Tuesday, September 3 from 6:30-8 pm at Oaklands Neighbourhood House, 2629 Victor Street.
