Sunny Side Up Social and Book Club
Sunny Side Up Social and Book Club is a public book club.
A group of mature Winston women (generally 50 - 70 years old) who regularly add literal and figurative sunshine to their lives.
Are you a liberal/pro-choice woman who wants to add to your life by reading fun and positive books, building friendships, enjoying the outdoors, being active, exploring places, and trying new things? Are you sometimes overwhelmed by the barrage of negativity in the media? Are you a member of a book club whose selection is terrific, but often weighty, triggering, and/or “substantive” in some way – and you’d like to lighten up sometimes? We might be a great fit for you!
We'll meet every other Friday from 11:30 - 1:30, usually outdoors. Book discussion and social time the first Friday of the month and fun outing the third Friday of the month.
If interested contact Eileen at firstname.lastname@example.org
