Manayunk Book Club August Meetup

This month we're reading The Dinner by Herman Koch.

"An internationally bestselling phenomenon: the darkly suspenseful, highly controversial tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives -- all over the course of one meal.

It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families."

Should hopefully make for a suspenseful read.

We're meeting in the park. Bug spray and a chair are highly recommended!

    So my work schedule changed and I'm out for Tuesday nights now. I'm not sure what time I will get out. If its at all reasonable I will try to make it by 8. I had such a great time last month I don't want to miss out!
