Holiday Party!

To celebrate the holidays, we'll be having a meetup - no prereading required. We'll be doing a "pass the parcel", so bring a favourite book (second-hand ok) and wrap it and include a note on the front saying the genre.

We have secured the back room at Atlanta for the evening!  The owner has kindly offered us $10 margharita pizzas as well on the night, so feel free to have dinner as part of the party too!

You can bus to Lambton Quay and walk up (like you're going to Chow, or the side entrance to Lambton Square) to the top and turn right, or there's a parking building more or less across the street.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

      Hey Ola we start at 7 & I think there's a lot of interest in the pizza deal so think we'll still be there at 8:30 if you want to pop by

      Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay, House of Spirits by Isabel Allende, The Far Pavilions if you're in for a long haul book (by MM Kaye), Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, Night Circus if you haven't already read. Hope this gives some ideas!

      The pizzas there are delicious! We managed to nab a deal where all 12"pizzas will be $10 each so don't eat dinner! They make gluten free too :-)

    • Ola

      Aw, so happy I could contribute, albeit only with an idea...:)
