New Meetup Group: Genesee County Literature Lovers #mwn #michlit

Meetup
New Meetup Group!
LISTED IN: BOOK CLUB, FICTION, READING, BOOK DISCUSSION, NOVEL READING, AND 10 MORE TOPICS.
This is a group for people who love literature in all forms whether it be a novel, poetry, play or lyrics. Reading is what I love most in this world and being able to share that love with other people makes reading even more enjoyable. I am looking forward to sharing in the joy of the written word with all of you!
Organized by Julie Hannah Bissett

Hello! My name is Julie and I love to read. I love reading so much that as a young child my mother used to ground me by taking away my reading privileges, little did she know that I had books hidden all over the house. :)
What is your favorite form of literature?
I love every form of literature. The written word speaks to me, there are novels that make laugh or cry, there are songs which I can’t help but sing along to, there are plays which make me question my very existence and there are movies (screen plays) which fill my with unending questions. Whatever form literature comes in the connection and love is always there.
What book would you suggest we read?
Although I have read more books than I can count, one which I would recommend for anyone to read would be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Yes, it is a little bit older and a “romance” novel but it is so beautifully written and has such memorable characters that it can quickly become one of your favorites. Until about a year ago I had never even wanted to read a Jane Austen novel, now I am one of her biggest fans.
Who is your favorite author?
Can anyone ever have just one favorite author??? Just to list a few; Novels: J. K. Rowling, Chinda Williams Chima, Suzanne Brockmann, Jennifer Cruise, Betty Neels, Jane Austen, Mitch Albom, James Patterson, Rick Riordan; Poetry: Robert Frost, Elizabeth Bishop, W. H. Auden, e.e. cummings; Plays: William Shakespeare, Tony Kushner, Steve Martin; Songs: Blue October, Ke$ ha, P!nk, Adele, Christina Perry, Nickelback, Shinedown, Seether, 3 Doors Down, Michael Buble. To me there are different writings for different times in our live and that is what these authors represent to me, different times, thoughts, emotions, feelings, needs, wants, but most of all life.

Meetup
New Meetup Group!
LISTED IN: BOOK CLUB, FICTION, READING, BOOK DISCUSSION, READERS, AND 2 MORE TOPICS.
This book group is being born out of a love of books!! I’m looking for like minded individuals that have a passion for award winning, much buzzed about fiction and non-fiction novels. We may read the occasional classic if we feel so inspired or we have a little more time on our hands. I’m not ruling too much out at this point. We will meet monthly on Mon, Tues or the occasional weekend if we can swing… [read more]
Organized by Tracie Carroll

I’m passionate about all things books. I read alot & belong to many book sites where I obtain info about new books, author events, etc. I listen to podcasts & try to stay current on what’s being talked about in the world of fiction/nonfiction!
