Chick lit is not all about being Carrie Bradshaw fabulous and finding a man - some of the best of what is now designated "chick lit" deals with the broad spectrum of what women today deal with - motherhood, family crises, social and moral issues - and even heavier topics like spousal abuse or the death of a spouse or significant other. Chick Lit can be light and fun - the classic "beach read" - or it can be deep, involving and sometimes disturbing.
The current members of the group chose some of their favorite chick lit books and authors for the fall discussion - which will represent this broad spectrum of what is generally deemed "good" chick lit. Here's what we've chosen for the fall:
Good Grief by Lolly Winston
Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
Heartbreaker by Julie Garwood
This Charming Man by Marian Keyes
The Beach House by Jane Green
The group meets Wednesday afternoons monthly in the Oaklyn Branch Cafe. The complete schedule, including dates and times can be found here.
