“ ...it seemed a part of her life, to step from the ancient to the modern, back and forth. She felt rather sorry for those who knew only one and not the other. It was better, she thought, to be able to select from the whole menu of human achievements than to be bound within one narrow range. ”

[close] The purpose of this meetup is to provide a spot for all women looking to have a social outlet, more reasons to read, and especially, for those who love wine! Let's start a group where we can try out different wines, get to know new each other and our interesting perspectives, all while reading a new book each month!

[close] For people interested in keeping up with the modern literary classics. We will be reading fiction and fine literature from 2000 to present, with the intent of finding those literary gems of timeless and enduring quality. We are not interested in reading the latest bestsellers, nor in discussing books already well-represented in other groups. Rather, our passion is to explore those works of fiction which stand a good chance of being remembered fifty years from now. In addition to seeking out books with literary merit, our secondary goal is to encourage lively, challenging, stimulating and thought-provoking discussions. If you are interested in going beyond bland and superficial discussions about the hottest book of the month, this could be the group for you.

The Young-God family rules over it horribly, while hiding in the safety of their precious castle. The citizens are oblivious to the chaotic nature of their home, born into the wreck of the city, they grow up knowing no normalcy. And the New Americana, the rebels who are Hurricane City's only hope of salvation, still haven't managed to overthrow the Young-Gods after more than a hundred years of trying. Maybe this will end like a movie, with the Young-Gods being overthrown by the New Americana, and everyone living happily ever after... Bᴜᴛ ᴛʜɪs ɪsɴ·ᴛ ᴀ ᴍ ᴏ ᴠ ɪ ᴇ Tʜᴇsᴇ ᴀʀᴇ ᴛʜᴇ B ᴀ ᴅ ʟ ᴀ ɴ ᴅ s
