Manayunk Book Club April Meetup

We're reading the 1st of 2 classics this month (The poll was tied, so stay tuned for another poll in May. Suggestions please!). So, who's ready for a little mystery? We're back at MBC favorite Kildare's to talk about In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.

"On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues.

As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence."

Looking forward to seeing everyone! If you're on the wait list. Jeff is hosting another meetup on May 1st. Details here:http://www.meetup.com/manayunk/events/114642782/

And we have a bowling night planned in May http://www.meetup.com/manayunk/events/114774032/. Don't worry, we won't mock you for guitar balls:-)

      Our normal meeting day is Tuesday. If we get enough people interested, we can schedule a second meeting, perhaps on another night

      I understand, I just have class every Tuesday from 6-9 so it precludes my attendance for every meeting. :(
