March Meetup-Heat

Come join us for a discussion of Heat by Bill Buford

We will meet at Red Hook Coffee & Tea (4th St between Fitzwater & Catharine), with some beverages compliments of the book club.

We will be wrapped up by 8:30pm.

At the end of our discussion we will vote on the book for the April Meetup. The Choices are:

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, by Muriel Spark

The Life and Loves of a She Devil, by Fay Weldon

Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson

February's meetup info can be found here.

Note - ***please avoid No-Shows*** -- do your best to not take up a Yes spot unless you are sure you can be there - we generally have a full house! If your RSVP changes, please update it on the site accordingly. Finishing the book is ideal but not a requirement, as we often juggle a lot in the day-to-day! We do, however, appreciate attendees attempting to complete the book, as it makes for a fuller discussion. Our talks as well as our book choices are always quite varied and enriching. :)

If you need to reach me via cell, it is[masked] - texting is preferred. Happy reading! See you there!

    Had to leave work early because my baby is sick, so I'm going to have to cancel. I loved the book!

    I will not be able to attend. My suggestions for the April reading if someone wishes to present them are: The Madonnas of Leningrad (Dean), Requiem (Itani), and The View from Garden City (Baugh).

    HI I just finished "KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL" by Anthony Bourdain and I loved it, so this book will be an additional source of the culinary world and NYC, looking forward to reading it.

    Hey Bill thanks for the ideas. We're always open to suggestions when it comes to the book selection process. At the moment we look for volunteers at each meeting to bring three choices for an upcoming month. I hope you'll consider volunteering.

    nolo contendere!

    I'd like to suggest the following as alternate choices for April, "The Finkler Question" by Harold Jacobsen, "Damned" by Chuck Palaniuk or "Prague Cemetary" by Umberto Eco. Nothing negative intended, just think there's no harm in adding a bit more adrenaline to the mix/choices. If it's already a done deal, no problem.
