Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

  • Apr 8, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • To be determined

April's book club selection is, "A Confederacy of Dunces" by John Kennedy Toole.


"Meet Ignatius J. Reilly, the hero of John Kennedy Toole's tragicomic tale, A Confederacy of Dunces. This 30-year-old medievalist lives at home with his mother in New Orleans, pens his magnum opus on Big Chief writing pads he keeps hidden under his bed, and relays to anyone who will listen the traumatic experience he once had on a Greyhound Scenicruiser bound for Baton Rouge. ("Speeding along in that bus was like hurtling into the abyss.") But Ignatius's quiet life of tyrannizing his mother and writing his endless comparative history screeches to a halt when he is almost arrested by the overeager Patrolman Mancuso--who mistakes him for a vagrant--and then involved in a car accident with his tipsy mother behind the wheel. One thing leads to another, and before he knows it, Ignatius is out pounding the pavement in search of a job."


Members can RSVP starting today 3/13/14.


We'll email the location of the meetup about a day or two before we meet.

    Sorry Crystal and I have to last minute bail too due to sickness. I read most of the book so I'm bummed to miss it but don't want to get anyone sick. Have fun!

    Horrible last minute bail! Been doing too much yard work and am exhausted. Also haven't read the book (see previous too much yard comment!). See y'all next month!

    I've been to only one of these, but I remember someone saying if you've come once, you can always come again and not be on the waiting list. Is that true? I'm on waiting list now.

      i haven't come to a meeting in a while, but that used to be the rule. since so many people rsvp but don't show up most of the time, it wasn't an issue.
