Bench Talk: Our First Book Club Book, "The Dirty Girls Social Club"

We are due to receive our first set of book club books on the 17th of March. Our first book is called, "The Dirty Girls Social Club," by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez.

Book overview:
In this irrepressible, can't-put-it-down novel of six friends-each one an unforgettable woman in her late twenties-you'll meet:

--Lauren, the "caliente" columnist for the local Boston paper whose love live has recently led her to her boyfriend's catch him in the act with someone else
--Sara, the perfect wife and mother who's got it all but who is paying a high price
--Amber, raised a Valley girl without a word of Spanish but who is becoming a huge rock en espanol star
--Elizabeth, the stunning black Latina whose TV anchor job conflicts with her intensely private personal life
--Rebecca, hyper-in-command in the world of her glossy magazine, Ella, but totally at sea when it comes to men
--Usnavys, fabulous and larger than life, whose agenda to land the kind of man who can keep her in Manolos almost prevents her finding true love

This book will be the first time that we ladies have participated in a 'book club' together. Up until this time, only Carolin has been part of a book club. We hope to share in the reading and our thoughts on the book together, with you our fellow benchers, on this post titled, "Bench Talk."
Please feel free to obtain a copy yourselves from your local library and read and share along with us!

Until then, looking forward to March 17th.
