For those who like to read a good book, drink a good beer, and maybe combine the two once in a while. Looking for people interested in laid-back discussions about books worth reading. Focusing fiction and non-fiction, both new and old; authors we've read so far range from Umberto Eco to Robert Louis Stevenson to Sarah Vowell to Yann Martel to Scott McCloud, among others. If it's good, we'll try to get around to it eventually! (At least that's the plan.) Meetings are usually held at Pub Italia, an establishment in central Ottawa with a marvelously extensive beer menu and a relaxed ambience that is great for conversation.
