Believe it or not, Chick Lit is here to stay and is now considered a staple of the fiction genres,
revolving around women dealing with relationships, jobs, marriage, raising children and much more.
Our group focuses on these modern works and discusses the merits and pitfalls of reading chick lit. Is it really all shopping, fashion, nannies and drama – or can these characters actually teach us something about our lives and ourselves?
Come find out! We'll be reading Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L James.
When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana's quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too-but on his own terms. Shocked yet thrilled by Grey's singular erotic tastes, Ana hesitates. For all the trappings of success-his multinational businesses, his vast wealth, his loving family-Grey is a man tormented by demons and consumed by the need to control. When the couple embarks on a daring, passionately physical affair, Ana discovers Christian Grey's secrets and explores her own dark desires. Erotic, amusing, and deeply moving, the Fifty Shades Trilogy is a tale that will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you forever.
