JEWEL EVENTS

1. Jewel Lesbian Fiction Book Club

Check the calendar for book club meeting dates. Our club is unique in that we have the author with us at each meeting, either in person or by web cam on a big screen TV. Each month we discuss a different book and have the opportunity to ask questions of the author. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet the authors and discuss books with other avid readers. If you haven't read the book please come too – the more the merrier.

We also have a book swap. Leave a book and take a book or buy a book for $2. What a deal! Plus, the money from the book swaps help to support the book club.

Meet at Ilume at 4123 Cedar Springs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Parking is available on the street, but watch for No Parking signs.

 

2. Jewel Writing Discussion and Exchange

Join us every 4th Tuesday as we discuss a different aspect of writing. We will also have a mini writing exercise. Then we will discuss what worked, what didn't, and how we can improve. This is also an opportunity to read and discuss works that you have written and works that your fellow Jewel women have written. We exchange writing one month with a pre-reading discussion and then discuss the writing after everyone has an opportunity to read the following month. Even if you don't write, come read what others wrote and learn about writing!

Meet at Ilume, 4123 Cedar Springs, Dallas, 75219, from 7-9 p.m. Parking is available on the street.
