Better Than Book Club: Waiting to Exhale

This months Better Than pick is a special one. Kiren and myself (Heather) were sitting discussing what book and movie we should pick this month, and found ourselves naming books by white men, over and over. We decided that needed to change, and so Kiren picked something that is a little out of the box for us: a romance by a woman of color - Waiting to Exhale by Terry McMillan. McMillan's novel is one of revenge, triumph, and friendship and I was once compared to a particular scene which you will know immediately once you read the book and see the movie with us

Movie Screening: Wednesday, May 30, 2018 @7:30PM

The screening is free, but seating limited. Beverages and food available from our neighbors Downtown Wine & Cheese.

Better Than Book Club: The Orchid Thief

This month's Better Than pick gets local and meta. We will be reading Susan Orlean's phenomenal personal story of her encounter with the eccentric John Laroche as he searches for the elusive Ghost Orchid with the ultimate intent of cloning it. Their journey takes them through the swamps of Florida and dangerous encounters. The book was optioned to be adapted to the screen by the equally eccentric Charlie Kaufman. As he struggled to write the screenplay, he instead chooses to write about his own experience with John Laroche and Susan Orlean, creating a wickedly funny and equally crazy film. Directed by Spike Jonze, you're in for a treat.
