Discuss The Postmistress at The Mediterranean Grill

I know nothing about this place but the menu looks interesting.  Given that it is Mediterranean lets all bring an Italian white wine.   Italy does make some great whites; let's mix it up and try something new.  Like the past meet ups let's stick to around $15 and we'll share.  Maybe we'll find a new favorite.  

Below is a link to the restaurant website and a description of the book.

Book description:

In 1940, Iris James is the postmistress in coastal Franklin, Massachusetts. Iris knows more about the townspeople than she will ever say, and believes her job is to deliver secrets. Yet one day she does the unthinkable: slips a letter into her pocket, reads it, and doesn't deliver it. 

Meanwhile, Frankie Bard broadcasts from overseas with Edward R. Murrow. Her dispatches beg listeners to pay heed as the Nazis bomb London nightly. Most of the townspeople of Franklin think the war can't touch them. But both Iris and Frankie know better... 

The Postmistress is a tale of two worlds-one shattered by violence, the other willfully naïve-and of two women whose job is to deliver the news, yet who find themselves unable to do so. Through their eyes, and the eyes of everyday people caught in history's tide, it examines how stories are told, and how the fact of war is borne even through everyday life.

    I will not presume that everyone might like my address in Nashville so I will not post it here. If you are interested, email me at [masked]. My best to everyone. Maybe someday I will Skype into a discussion!!!

    Thank you all for a very nice evening last night. For my last time with you, it was very pleasant without being overwhelming. I have had a great time reading, talking, eating and drinking with you. I will do my best to stay in touch and let you know if Nashville has anything to compare with our get-together. I do know there is a major book fair in Nashville in October, complete with outdoor booksellers, authors and conversations, and signings. Think about it. Always, Mike

    I'm sorry to cancel so late but this one snuck up on me... I have the book but haven't even started it yet (somehow I thought I had another week...) Have fun!

      Ylva - thanks for the note. It's good to know, especially if there's a wait list, but we don't have one for tomorrow if you'd just like to join us and talk wine. If I don't see you have a great month.

    Sorry, but I have to skip this one. My son's HS graduation party is that day.
