April Meetup: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

For April, we will be reading A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan.

Description:  Bennie is an aging former punk rocker and record executive. Sasha is the passionate, troubled young woman he employs. Here Jennifer Egan brilliantly reveals their pasts, along with the inner lives of a host of other characters whose paths intersect with theirs. With music pulsing on every page, A Visit from the Goon Squad is a startling, exhilarating novel of self-destruction and redemption.

Please arrive between 6:30 and 7 so that you can browse and shop in the store - Time Tested has a lot of great new and used books! - and get situated. The meeting discussion will begin at 7.

Reminder: Time Tested is happy to order a book for you if they don't have it on the shelves - and it's easy! Just call or stop by... they put in orders on Tuesdays and it is often available that Thursday. Be sure to let them know you are with the Sacramento Women's Book Club.

The $5 fee goes to Time Tested Books for letting us use their great space.

Please bring a dish to share with the group (whatever you like!). Thanks!

    A small but very astute group. Everybody kept their plot lines and character references spot on!

    So sorry I didn't make it!! I had car trouble today and ended up having to deal with that. :/ And I'd even put Book Club on my calendar and finished the book and everything. Boo
