About two months ago my good friend Teri invited me to join her fabulous book club, made up by many of my fellow SoTro neighborhood people.
Tonight I hosted our meeting and we discussed the book "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. If ever there was a book with an adorable cover, this is it. I did not, however, love the book itself. Most of our book club did, though, so don't let me discourage you from checking it out.
A quick overview: It's the true story of the author's journey as she divorces her husband, leaves her NYC home and finds out more about herself by living in Italy (eat), India (pray) and Indonesia (love) over one year. She discusses what she learns from each place and its culture.
We had pizza from the best pizza place in SLC (in my completely objective opinion), Z Pizzeria, and everyone contributed additional delicious items, including the lovely Indian treats Sonia shared with us.
Susan was so thoughtful and even brought me a hostess gift. Who knew that you could get a gift just by having some great girls over for treats, wine and a fun discussion? Book club, where have you been all my life?
It was a great night. Four bottles of wine + lively discussion, pizza, treats, gelato & full moon = One perfect evening.
