“Many are rather easily able to contemplate the heroism of sacrifice, yet it is the few who are brave enough to move that notion from thought to action. And it is to those of you who made that move that my heart salutes and my soul marvels.” ― Craig D. Lounsbrough

Aesop's Book Club

Welcome to Aesop’s Book Club! Our goal is to bring people together who love to discuss all things literary. Every month we choose one book to discuss but we cover lots of other topics so if you haven’t finished the book (or started), feel free to join us anyway!

We meet on the last Tuesday of every month and we offer both an 11:00am and 7:00pm discussion so you can attend either. We ask that you register online so we can set up accordingly but feel free to stop in last minute if you forget (we all do sometimes and can always set up another chair!)

We aim for lively, diverse, engaging discussion. If you have a book you just absolutely loved and would recommend, this is a great place to share. Hope to see you soon!

 Past Selections

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid (5 stars)
Paired with a mimosa and ibuprofen

This book was a unanimous 5 star read and made for a great discussion. The style of writing was unique, fun and refreshing. It was a love story at its heart but in a way that surprised most of us. The character development was very well done and the band came to life on the pages. We wanted to research the people, listen to the songs and jump into the the rock and roll world Taylor Jenkins Reid created! The story read like a Rolling Stone Magazine interview, following eight or nine different people, which made it easy to follow read and gave lots of different perspectives (which depending on the storyline was interesting, hilarious or heartbreaking). We also discussed the strength of the female characters, which relationships were most impactful and how the decisions of one person could affect so many.

One In-A-Million Boy by Monica Wood (5 stars)
Paired with Ona’s tomato soup cupcakes and milk

Home Fire by Kamila Shansie (4.5 stars)
Paired with fresh cherries and Pimms
