Are there currently any book clubs for women in the Uni/Old Orchard area? I am very intereasted in joining a group of contemporary women for open book discussion.

I'm sure the Sanger Branch library on Central either has a book club or knows how to find some nearby. My sister is a big fan of her club (out of state). Seems like a nice thing to do.
BTW, sometimes a man wants to join the club, if he likes literature, or just the chosen book. So it may not just be women.
Thanks Viola...It does seem like a nice thing to do doesn't it??? I have no objection to men LOL!
RockChick, if you find anything, could you post the information here? A friend and I were looking about a year ago and could find nothing other than a group that met at Panera in Maumee and another one at the West Toledo library branch that met in the middle of the day--which excludes anyone working 8 to 5.
My friend ended up starting her own as I started grad school. Joining one is something I'm still interested in. Helping to run one would be something for AFTER grad school. :)
There's a really great book group at the People Called Women bookstore. It was at Cricket West until last year, now it's on Holland Sylvania near Sylvania Ave.

The link I posted is to a similar group in England. Try this one: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_187778764578629
RockChick, a friend told me that near Chicago they have a book group called "Noir in a Bar." They meet once a month to discuss edgy books in an adult atmosphere. Sounds good to me! Let me know if you decide to start a club.
I'd greatly enjoy a book club but I'm male.
There was a meetup.com based Book group in Toledo but not entirely sure what happened to it. Went one time and it was all female so I felt a bit out of place.
Actually looks like it's still around.
INC, you posted that link a month too late. I've been meaning to read Left Neglected, and apparently that was the group's July selection.
mom2, RockChick: check the group out, the seemed like a nice bunch of woman. :)
INC - I was at the library last night, and tried looking for their August selection (just in case I decided to show up). It was already checked out though. However, I did check out the book from July that I've been wanting to read. :)
Also...while at the Sylvania branch library last night, I discovered that they have a book club that meets once a month. I don't know much else about it, but can get more info next time I'm there. They had a schedule on the wall of dates/books for the rest of the year.
Yesterday's Blade featured an article about local book clubs.
RockChick - one of the clubs profiled was an Old Orchard women's book club.
