The third Wednesday evening of each month at the Hockessin Library is especially for women.
The "Chick Lit Book Group" meets at 7 p.m. to talk about books that focus on females. The group, which started almost a year and a half ago, is now comprised of six members, but has room for more.
Led by Terri Jones, the Youth Service Librarian, the women discussed Lisa Scottoline's "Come Home" on Wednesday evening.
Jones likes to keep the book list light and breezy and she moderated the discussion with questions from the author's reading guide. As members reflected on the book, they shared personal stories, not only to relate to the book but to each other. The book group quickly became a homey, safe, and fun environment.
Kelsey Guinnup and Anita Gorton have been attending the book group since last January. Gorton found out about the group through a bulletin board at the Hockessin Library while Guinnup found it online.
"It's a breath of fresh air for me," said Gorton, a stay-at-home mom. "It's nice to have something in common with people other than kids."
Both Guinnup and Gorton recommend joining the book group, and they find the intimate setting appealing.
The featured book in June will be "Sarah's Key" by Tatiana de Rosnay.
