OCTOBER BOOK CLUB: I Feel Bad about My Neck

by Nora Ephron

Date: Wednesday, October 25
Time: 5:30pm
Location: FI Library

We’ve selected to read a book by Nora Ephron titled I Feel Bad About My Neck, And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman, recommended by Abby McCall.

“With her disarming, intimate, completely accessible voice, and dry sense of humor, Nora Ephron shares with us her ups and downs in “I Feel Bad About My Neck,” a candid, hilarious look at women who are getting older and dealing with the tribulations of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

The woman who brought us “When Harry Met Sally”…, “Sleepless in Seattle”, “You’ve Got Mail”, and “Bewitched,” and the author of best sellers “Heartburn,” “Scribble Scribble,” and “Crazy Salad,” discusses everything -from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock…

Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. She recounts her anything-but-glamorous days as a White House intern during the JFK years… But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age.

Utterly courageous, wickedly funny, and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling, “I Feel Bad About My Neck” is a book of wisdom, advice, and laugh-out-loud moments, a scrumptious, irresistible treat.”

Please invite friends who might also be interested. The more readers the better and so many people are unable to join on any given night that I don’t think we can have too many people. There are lots of book lovers on the island and it’s really nice to bring the group together. Please feel free to forward this to anyone else you can think of. All are welcome.

We generally select the book for the following month at the preceding meeting. Feel free to BYOBeverage and a snack to share if you like.

Going forward, for various reasons, we have decided to convene our Book Club on the 4th Wednesday of each month whenever possible.
