May Book Club Meeting

Our book will be "Out Stealing Horses" by Per Petterson!!

 

Please join us for our May meeting! It will be at Darby's Pub and Grill- 315 5th Ave N, Minneapolis, MN. There is a free parking ramp next to the restaurant; the entrance is strange- in what seems like the back of the building.

 

 

 

"Out Stealing Horses" won!

Please vote on 1 of the following 3 books (picked from previous NY Times Best Sellers Lists) in the comments below! I will pick the winner in a few weeks and announce it in the event details. I have included links to the books on Amazon.com so you can read the description

2. Little Heathens: Hard Times and High Spirits on an Iowa Farm During the Great Depression by Mildred Armstrong Kalish

    I have made a reservation under "Katie", in case I am not the first to arrive.
    There is going to be a large event outside on their patio, so we will be inside.
    Can't wait to see you all there!

    Do we have a final book for May yet? My vote is for Stealing Horses if you're still taking votes.

    Both Stealing Horses and Heathens look good- positive reviews on Good Reads (ps that's a good app/site if you all haven't joined it yet). I vote in that order

    I've read Out Stealing Horses, but it was a long time ago and I don't remember too much about it haha...so I wouldn't mind reading it again. Otherwise Little Heathens sounds good.

    Me again! I originally voted for Little Heathens, but then I realized that would make the third memoir-style book in a row. Can I change my vote to Stealing Horses? Just for the sake of variety =)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
