June (Weds) Meetup : The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood @ Briciole (Italian)

  • Jun 26, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

N.B. The deposit is refunded at the meeting - this is an entirely non-profit making Meetup group!

In Margaret Atwood's brilliantly conceived contemporary classic, The Handmaid's Tale, women in 21st Century America are generally offered two choices – breed or die. I'm not sure how much more dystopic literature I can take! I guarantee our book discussion this month will be replete with controversy.

For this meeting we've booked a function room at a charming and highly regarded Italian restaurant.

    Hey, by the way! I will like to contribute even if I am not there enjoying the lovely meal. My proposal for one of the next books to read is a book I read a long time ago in Spanish and I still adore so I would love everyone to share the joy of reading. But dont presume I am cheating, I will read the English rendition this time to verify translations really do reflect the fantastic original. As you do not know me or my taste in books check what others have to say... http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/588242.Kiss_of_the_Spider_Woman

    Apologies, really was looking forward to my first book dinner in this group, but I am still buried with work at the office and its almost 5 pm. Hope to make it next time, althought that is possible late August after holidays. Enjoy!
