BOOK CLUB: Really Good, Actually
Our second Unity Book Club is here! This month we will be reading "Really Good, Actually" by Monica Heisey.
About the book:
I feel like when you get a divorce everyone’s wondering how you ruined it all, what made you so unbearable to be with. If your husband dies, at least people feel bad for you.
Maggie’s marriage has ended just 608 days after it started, but she’s fine – she’s doing really good, actually. Sure, she’s alone for the first time in her life, can’t afford her rent and her obscure PhD is going nowhere . . . but at the age of twenty-nine, Maggie is determined to embrace her new status as a Surprisingly Young Divorcée™.
Soon she’s taking up ‘sadness hobbies’ and getting back out there, sex-wise, oversharing in the group chat and drinking with her high-intensity new divorced friend Amy. As Maggie throws herself headlong into the chaos of her first year of divorce, she finds herself questioning everything, including: Why do we still get married? Did I fail before I even got started? How many Night Burgers until I’m happy?
Melissa will be hosting our monthly book club to discuss some of the excellent recently released books.
Our monthly book club will be on the last Thursday of every month (excluding December), from 6.30pm to 8pm. We will announce the title we will be reading two months in advance, and at that time make the tickets available.
We have limited tickets available so grab a ticket sooner rather then later and tell your friends and whānau.
Drinks and snacks provided. If you have any specific allergies, let us know and send an email.
If you have any further queries send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and address it to Melissa.
