The votes are in, and the 1950s/1960s-set book that came in with the most is "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. The venue this time around will be Essential Thai Cuisine, which has a solid 4 stars on Yelp.
During the event, we'll eat some tasty food and go through discussion questions on the book, which I'll send out a day or two before we meet. If you aren't able to finish the book, no worries. Just answer the questions you want to.
For our April/May event, we're going to read a book set in the American West. Please feel free to bring suggestions for American West-set books to the event. I'll set up a poll afterward with the book suggestions, so we can decide which book to delve into.
Back to our current selection, though. Here's a description of "Flowers for Algernon" from Amazon.com:
“With more than five million copies sold, Flowers for Algernon is the beloved, classic story of a mentally disabled man whose experimental quest for intelligence mirrors that of Algernon, an extraordinary lab mouse. In poignant diary entries, Charlie tells how a brain operation increases his IQ and changes his life. As the experimental procedure takes effect, Charlie's intelligence expands until it surpasses that of the doctors who engineered his metamorphosis. The experiment seems to be a scientific breakthrough of paramount importance--until Algernon begins his sudden, unexpected deterioration. Will the same happen to Charlie?
An American classic that inspired the award-winning movie Charly."
The attendance policy will be in place for this event. If you're not familiar with it, please take a minute or two to familiarize yourself with it.
Hope you can make it!
