Happy December, ladies!
We can’t believe we’re already wrapping up 2018, but we’re going out with a bang by reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life and shocks everyone when she chooses unknown magazine writer Monique Grant to share her story. Monique is not exactly on top of the world, her husband having left her and her career stagnated, but she’s determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her journalism endeavours once more.
From her posh Upper East Side apartment, Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life begins to unfold through the decades, Monique begins to feel a very real connection with the actress; however, none more so than when Evelyn’s story catches up to the present, and it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways. We can’t wait to get together to discuss this story and celebrate this festive season with you this month.
We have a very festive meeting planned this month! Following the book discussion of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, we will also be holding a holiday book exchange. If you’d like to participate, please bring a new or gently used book, all wrapped up! We will be playing Secret Santa so everyone leaves with a book.
