Zap! It's a bird! Pow! It's a plane! Bam! It's our October book, Michael Chabon's well-admired 2001 work, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay. The novel follows the lives of two Jewish cousins before, during, and after World War II. They are a Czech artist named Joe Kavalier and a Brooklyn-born writer named Sam Clay. In the novel, Kavalier and Clay become major figures in the comics industry from its nascency into its "Golden Age." A Pulitzer winner that is at least partly set in Brooklyn? That sounds like a job for... the BROOKLYN PULITZER PRIZE BOOK GROUP!!!
As always, we'd love to have you join us, even if you haven't read the whole thing, if you've never come before, or you haven't been here in months. We don't care. We're not one of those clique-y groups. Come on by and pull up a chair.
Black Mountain has 25 lovely wines available for your drinking pleasure, tasty small plates, and a comfortable vibe. Come join us on Monday, October 21st!
P.S.: Oh, about the $1 fee: Meetup charges $12+/month to maintain a Meetup group, so this is just an attempt to defray some of that cost.
P.S.#2: If you do need to cancel for some reason, please do so with as much advance notice as possible. We’ve now got more than 150 members, so we usually have a waiting list for our events. By canceling as soon as you can, you enable others to participate as well, which is nice for all.
