Looking for like-minded folks who dig super-contemporary fiction! If you read newer stuff like Murakami, Junot Diaz, Jonathan Franzen, DFW, and Jennifer Egan (also the best of non-fiction) then I think you'll like us. We really do discuss the books, it's not just wine and chit-chat.  Meetings take place once a month in venues accessible by the blue line. Ladies & gents 20 to 50-ish who are serious about reading and want awesome book club selections, please join!
