FIRST of all… I cannot thank you all enough for the Baby Book Shower at the last meeting… what a total surprise! I am so honored to know beautiful and brilliant women like you, and I can’t wait to share the world of books with baby soon!
Orient was a success! I think everyone actually read it, ha! We were most impressed with the authors descriptive writing, which managed not to veer off into the realm of self indulgent, though we had a hard time caring about the fate of most of his characters. Most… not all.
We are so excited to do brunch on 4/3 at 10:30 am at What a Dish in Dana Point, 24921 Dana Point Harbor Dr b100, Dana Point, CA 92629 (behind Mahe) RSVP so we can make a reservation! This month is Lara’s choice (and formerly Liz‘s!), a tearjerker we hear!
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (Buy it here)
Because we’re overachievers (or at least like to think we are), here are some extra readings found by Liz that she thought we’d like after we wrap up this next read! She says:
“So excited to discuss this incredibly moving book. I’m adding to the reading list and suggesting these essays in addition to the book. One was written by the author before his book was released and right before he died. I recommend NOT wearing any mascara.“
“The second was written by his wife following Paul’s death; I love hearing her perspective. Just as heartbreaking, but just as uplifting, somehow.”
“I wish I could write half as beautifully as these two.” ~Liz
It’s relatively short, but that’s good because we will meet in only 2 more weeks! Sorry for the delayed notice, but hope to see as many of you there as possible!
