  • Chicagoland book club

    Chicagoland book club
    Things to know about our club: Women Who Read has been in existence for 14 years, beginning as a small group of co-workers who then brought along friends and neighbors. We're a diverse group, with careers ranging from artist to scientist, but our love of reading joins us. As far as our book choices, we try to include at least one classic and one nonfiction book each year. The rest are selected by consensus. Our monthly meeting location rotates between our homes, but we have two special meetings. One is during the summer, when we combine our discussion with a garden tour in one member's lovely yard. The other is in December, when we are treated to a special Christmas wonderland in a fabulously decorated home. The highlight is a wrapped book exchange, where we draw names and give books we wish someone would give us — or ones we've read and loved. Recently, Justine Vaughn, a key member and the hostess of our annual Christmas celebration, passed away after a battle with cancer.
