There’s a good chance that the title of “Yellowstone” author Lee Reese’s bookclub might surprise you.
The book club of Reese’s company, the “Yellowstones,” is in its third year and has a reputation for being one of the best in the country, but some members are calling out the publication for a variety of reasons.
The group has a strict dress code, including black shirts and pants.
But some members say they don’t see a problem with members wearing black as long as they wear a jacket, a tie and a hat.
The Yellowstones are also a good place for young Jewish men to meet, said member Adam Bialecker, 21, who grew up in the community and is now an adult.
He said he thinks members have a good time and have the opportunity to share the experience.
But other members said they do see issues with the way the book club organizes itself.
The book club was created by Reese in 2014 after a long-running feud with another local club, the New York City book club.
In a letter to The Jerusalem Report, members complained about the lack of diversity and the “unnecessary” and “outdated” dress code.
The New York club has its own issues, too, including a recent decision to ban members from wearing jewelry on the premises.
“We are not allowed to wear our jewelry, we are not supposed to wear that kind of thing, but they just decided that they do, and they’re not gonna change their policy,” said Bialeecker, who now works at a nearby hotel.
The dispute over the club is not the only thing that’s been in the spotlight for the Yellowstones.
The organization was shut down last year, after the owner and the founder of the club, a former student at Temple University, were charged with sexual harassment.
Reese was also sued in 2016 by another local group for a book club he founded, the Yellowstone Women’s Club, for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a former member.
The group’s leaders also allegedly harassed former members in the group.
The lawsuit against the former club was settled in October, and Reese has yet to file a new lawsuit.
