Look What's New
It's August and time to renew your membership! Go to our Join page now! Our membership year runs from June - May.
Want to let everyone know about your latest publication, honor, or appearance? Then hop on over to our Member News page and complete the contact form. And while you're there, you'll see what's new with your fellow WNBA Nashville members. Member news can also be about your retirement, a promotion at work, or anything that you want to share. News of current members only will be published. There's some excitement in Nashville!
Have you missed some of our events but would like to see who was there and what happened? Then enjoy looking at the pictures that were taken at our programs. It's not the same as being there, but maybe it's better than missing out completely!
Have you heard about our new Literary Society? We still have our book discussion every third Saturday at 10:00 a.m. in January, March, May, July, September, and November. But now we also have a literary society on the third Thursday night at 7:00 p.m in February, April, June, August, October, and December. At these gatherings, we all share what we've been reading and get great ideas for new books to read. Be watching out for emails containing the Zoom links for these events.
At our next Literary Society meeting on August 18 at 7:00, we'll be talking about possible contenders for our book discussion reads in 2023. Join us and give us some ideas for great books to debate!
"I look forward to hearing everyone talk enthusiastically about the books they're reading, and what they most enjoyed. It's always a nice variety. My "books to read" list has grown every time we chat over Zoom." -- Tori Ross
Your current Nashville board members had their summer retreat at the Bellevue branch of the Nashville Public Library on July 23. To see pictures of us hard at work, go to the Pictures page. Your board members discussed great ideas for our chapter and we're looking forward to a fun year when we plan to be meeting in person again! Board members are listed here.
September Book Discussion
September 17, 2022
by Elizabeth Strout
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Strout returns to the world of Lucy Barton in a luminous new novel about love, loss and family secrets. Oh William! explores the mysteries of marriage and the secrets we keep, as a former couple reckons with where they’ve come from — and what they’ve left behind.
All book discussions are currently being held on Zoom.
Upcoming Book Discussions
Next Literary Society:
August 18 at 7:00pm
Coffee With Authors at SFB
A buzz of anticipation fills the air among booklovers. The 34th Annual Southern Festival of Books is just around the corner. The first in-person SFOB since 2019!
Also, in-person, our WNBA Nashville chapter will host the popular Coffee with Authors at 10 am, Saturday, October 15th in the auditorium of the Nashville Downtown Public Library. Mary Laura Philpott will moderate a panel discussion with authors:
- Jennifer Close (Marrying the Ketchups)
- Taylor Harris (This Boy We Made)
- Annie Hartnett (Unlikely Animals)
- Shelby Van Pelt (Remarkably Bright Creatures)
We will need help stuffing and handing out goody bags, preparing and serving breakfast pastries, plus clean-up (which is quick). We’ll also need someone to take pictures at the event. If you’d like to help, please contact Genetta Adair at email@example.com or text/call 901-292-1986.
Please plan to join us for coffee, snacks, readings, and book discussions!
