Corny as ever but still relevant the tone of this group is geared towards real friendly and down to earth. So start small just leave your first name or whatever you would like to be called and your state. If you are feeling more adventurous - leave more details - the choice is yours !
It is absolutely fitting that our first book club read begin with what many have waited for from a woman that is admired and esteemed from near and far. We will connect here at least once a week to discuss the book, topics and weekly updates and reviews related to the book and the current tour that Ms. Obama is on. Keep your eyes focused and open as there may be a book giveaway here and there. ! Information on any giveaways will be posted here so stay tuned.!
Kicking things off - First a warm and decidedly friendly welcome to all of you who have joined - we definitely appreciate you ! We are looking forward to getting some good reading in and some great discussions as well. Feel free at any time to suggest a book you think that might be a good read. The club will vote on books as needed so you all get a say. Some of the books down the pike are Empire of The Summer Moon - By S.C. Gwynne, Some Sing Some Cry - by Ntozoke Shange ,Octavia Butler(multiples) and more. We will be looking to get things started this Thursday so keep your eyes open for our first discussion topic which will show up then. Going forward we will have one major discussion topic per week, however feel free to create a topic or question of your own if you wish ! Be sure and share the link with your friends , etc - the more the merrier ! And of course Happy Holidays to all !

On behalf of the staff of BGN I would like to welcome everyone to the first BGN book club and our first entry which is the long anticipated, autobiographical account by the Former First Lady - Michelle Obama.
A few things to get us started, if you haven't please jump in and let us know where you are from. Your state that you hail from is fine.
Some of us have already started reading so there will be a bit of recap starting out but it should make for better discussions.
When a topic posts, feel free to chime in - no matter what your point of view is. Discussions pros and cons are welcome. Arguments aren't. Keep it Civil !
Feel free to add images or vid clips to your replies as you see fit - just keep it safe for work !
