"Discussing the book is important, but laughing is often our goal."

We've read a few nonfiction books, but mostly we focus on favorite authors and/or books of fiction. Mysteries seem to pop up as suggestions more than other genre. We've been meeting since July of 2004, and we'd love to have more members!

The format of Cupid's Café is to choose authors in a cycle. The first month of a cycle features a new or newly-discovered writer; the second month spotlights a perennial favorite; and the third month showcases our regional talent by choosing an author who lives in North Alabama.Pizza is offered at the meetings and there is a $5.00 charge if you would like to eat pizza.
