Women's book club in West Seattle

    I'm a recent transplant to Seattle, living in West Seattle, and would love to either start a book group or join one. I'd prefer a group of women since my husband and I don't know a lot of people yet, and though I love hanging out with him, I need some girl time! I am in my mid-30's and would like to read current fiction, memoirs, and classics. If anyone is interested in starting a group, or knows of a good group interested in new members, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks!

    Hi Sara!
    Welcome to West Seattle! I would love to get a group together with you. Mid-thirties too, with two little boys, girl time would be excellent. I am currently in Highland Park, maybe we can find a central location. Let me know!

  3. Hi Sara!

    I too am a recent transplant to Seattle (almost a year though), living in West Seattle. I'd love to join a book club with some other ladies. I'm in my early 30's and live by the California/Alaska junction. Let me know!

    kmweiner -- I am interested in a 40+ book club - or at least one where everyone is not so so focused on babies and kids. I'm past that, looking for girl time and interested in talking about current fiction with maybe a sprinkling of nonfiction.

    The "older" women's group got started about 8 months ago and we are doing great. If you want/need some info about how we worked it all out, you can contact me at activistkmw AT hotmail.com

    I am surprised no one mentioned the Seattle Public Library book clubs. i attend the SW branch clubs. 1-monday afternoon/2-monday nite. both lively and outspoken. we choose books once a year from 429 selections open to us, and the library provides the books free for one month. to check out the book names, google kitkeepers seattle.
    the eve group is crowded now, but the afternoon group, meeting the 3rd monday of each month has room to breathe and talk. all are welcome. drop in and pick up the next month's selection. (september: Brideshead Revisited.)
    thanks, troika

  21. Hi, did you guys ever start a book club? If so, is it still going on? Taking any new folks? I am very interested... seem to have much in common by way of age (late 30's), newness to the area & parental status (though I have a high schooler). :)

  22. Hello

    I would be interested in a monthly book club in West Seattle. I'm 61 so I'd prefer a 40 or 50 and older crowd as well where kids and parenting are of less concern.
    Perhaps we should start two separate threads if there is enough interest,

    I am in my early 30s and just moved to West Seattle. Looking for a book club that's part stimulating conversation, part girl time. Is there a book club open to new members or is anyone interested in joining one if I start it? It's mid-January and the winter doldrums have begun...let's read some enlivening literature!

    Posted 1 year ago #         
  25. I would absolutely LOVE this.
    So hear you on the winter doldrums - starting to feel like a bit of shut-in!

    Contact me at
    sprechanzy AT hotmail DOT com

    Thanks!
