NEXTGen Detroit Clusters Presents

A Novel Bunch: Book Cluster

  • Virtual Event
  • Monday, January 18th at 7:00 pm

January 18, 2021 @ 7:00 PM 8:00 PM

Join us for the debut of A Novel Bunch: NEXTGen Detroits Monthly Virtual Book Club Cluster! We’re starting the new year off with a good read, good conversation and of course, some good snacks!

Our book for the month of January is The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World by Melinda Gates (2019). And we suggest pairing this inspiring work with a nice Pinot Noir, some savory gruyere and a bittersweet dark chocolate. We’ll get together on Zoom the evening of January 18 in breakout rooms with a facilitator who will guide us through a meaningful conversation about the book while we share our opinions on this month’s read and, well, just book nerd out together.

Please be sure to register online by December 18, and give yourself enough time to read and enjoy the book!

There is no cost to participate in the book club, you just need to get the book. If you can’t borrow one from the library or a friend, here is a link to buy a copy of your own:

This online event is intended for young adults ages 21 to 45.

About NEXTGen Detroit Clusters:
Meet and hang out with people who are into what you’re into — it’s as chill as that! Our Clusters come together about once a month to kick back, relax and enjoy a few of our favorite things. Here are the other Clusters that are currently meeting up:

Sniffers and Sippers: Whiskey Tasting Cluster
Scotch, bourbon, rye — whatever you want to call it, we’re into it! Meet up with fellow Whiskey whisperers to share recommendations, talk all things barrel-aged and try something new.

Table Talkers: Euchre Cluster
Of course there’s a cluster devoted to Michigan’s favorite card game! And we can even play remotely thanks to this cool euchre website we found. Bring your bowers!

You Can Sip With Us, OK!: Wine Tasting Cluster
L’chaim! We love red, we love white, we love rosé all day…and we would love for you to join our Cluster! No sommelier status required, come as you are and raise a glass.
