 In 1991, several members of the Middletown, Ohio, branch of the American Association of University Women began reading books together and meeting once a month to discuss them.

Why do we call our group Joy Luck Club? The first book we read together was Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club. We've also read and discussed her books The Kitchen God's Wife and The Bonesetter's Daughter.

Click on the links at left to see the lists of fiction and non-fiction that we've read over the years. For the titles followed by MOVIE, our discussion of that book included watching the movie together.
