All WNBA programs are free and open to the public. We encourage members to bring guests; it is a great way to increase awareness of our amazing organization within the community. The informal pre-event gathering starts at 5:00pm at Bronte Café. For those who can make it, this is a great opportunity to meet other members and guests and enjoy the delicious fare Bronte Café offers.

This month’s meeting will run from 6:00-7:15pm. Jonathan Marx, former Book Editor of The Tennessean, Margaret Renkl Book Editor of Nashville Scene and Trisha Ping, Fiction Editor of BookPage, will discuss the role of the book review. It’s a timely discussion given the changes the publishing and media industries have undergone over the last decade. How are these changes impacting how consumer use book reviews and ultimately select which books to read given the proliferation in titles and increased popularity of the Internet and such programs as Oprah’s Book Club?
