T-Dot Bookclub December Meetup

RSVP's open on Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Hey hey Readers!

Let's take a stroll through Dublin with your man Roddy Doyle! But be prepared to have read:

The Barrytown Trilogy, by Roddy Doyle  (First published as a trilogy in 1992!)

This trilogy, featuring the Rabbitte family, contains three of R. Doyle's books, The Commitments (yes, the same as the movie), The Snapper, and The Van.  Even all together, not a long read.

You may also be interested to know that in 2013 Roddy Doyle has returned to the Rabbitte clan and has published The Guts. For extra credit (not really, but why not!) read this one too.

Happy Reading!

 If the RSVP list is full don't hesitate to jump on the waiting list.  You'll be surprised how fast the list turns over as the big day approaches (especially the last 24hrs!).  So if you DO wind up on the waiting list you'd better keep your calender clear.

Just a brief note on our methods and madness:

The point of choosing more then one book is to engage as many different tastes as possible.  The added bonus is that it gives us a platform for discussion - which is why the books we choose are always thematically similar.

We don't expect you to always have the time to read both monthly book selections.  You can rest assured that our conversations are so deliciously booky in general, that you really only need to be a lover of the written word to find something to get down and dirty with.

That said, its entirely up to you how much you're going to be bothered by spoilers, or discussion about books you haven't read, because we don't hold back!  [aka: SPOILER ALERT]

So if you want to come out - even if you haven't read the books - by all means c'mon out!   Even folks who haven't read any of the books on offer that month at all have left having had a great time!

* All of our books are chosen as a collective at each meeting. We're like the Borg that way.

    It was very interesting. I had a great time, since I was the only guy there, all the rest were women!

    Hi All, Please accept my apologies but I will have to bow out of tomorrow night's get-together. Take care and enjoy.

    As a Dubliner, I'm especially sorry to miss this meetup! I am behind with the books though, so would prefer not to take up a spot.
