Hi Brainy Readers -

Hope all is well! Just a reminder that starting in this month, remember we switch to early Sunday dinners until after Labor Day, so we can all enjoy the great weather during the sunny hours but still make time to get together and read some good books! Of course the weather this week is better suited to reading than venturing outdoors....so why not pick up one of our next books and settle in for a few hours!

There's still plenty of room to join us for May and June - and July RSVPs will open up on 5/23!

As a reminder - quick descriptions of our upcoming books are below - hope to see many of you soon!

Cheers,

Rachel

May DINNER: Riders of the Purple Sage (Zane Grey) - May 23rd
Riders of the Purple Sage (1912) has been called the most popular western novel of all time. It is set in the mysterious canyon country of southern Utah, and the rugged landscape the novel inhabits is more than a backdrop for the action. I've always been curious about Zane Grey - and at under 300 pages I thought we could give it a try. I'm about 1/4 way in and am really enjoying the book so far!

June DINNER: The Left Hand of Darkness (Ursula Le Guin) - June 27th
Praised as a groundbreaking work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness tells the story of a lone human emissary's mission to Winter, an unknown alien world whose inhabitants can choose ? and change ? their gender. Completely embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction. Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for "Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year".

July DINNER: Embers (Sandor Marai) - July 18th
