Come join us for a informal evening of book browsing and conversation.
We'll start off at the Harvard Book Store.
Suggested book to read before the meetup: Interpreter of Maladies is a book collection of nine short stories by Indian American author Jhumpa Lahiri published in 1999. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award. (description from Wikipedia)
After some time browsing the books, picking up some new purchases, we'll wonder down to 40 Brattle street for a hot chocolate, a tea, a cappuccino, or some other delight that Algiers Coffee House offers. Algiers offers sandwiches, salads, lamb kabob, besbousa, french toast,, moelettes, etc.
What new titles tempted you at the bookstore?
Here will have a fun time socializing, discussing what we've enjoyed reading, etc.
What is your favorite new author? What are some of the first books you read that pulled you into worlds hidden inside books? What types of books to you seek out most? Biographies? Novels? Classics? Or?
