What we're about

Do you keep a running list of books to read? Does the phrase "Library Book Sale" give you goosebumps? Do you also enjoy the occasional adult beverage? Then this is the place for you! The goal of this group is to stimulate engaging conversation about books and meet other avid readers. Book choices will typically be contemporary or classic literature, but other genres will always be considered. It is suggested you read the assigned book before the meet up, but if you just want to come and hang out and hear what others have to say, feel free. So come and meet some new people, have a few drinks and read some great books!

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

The Bayou

In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. . . . Hope you can join us!

1Q84 Book 2 by Haruki Murakami
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Second installment! The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo. A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 —“Q is for ‘question mark.’ A world that bears a question.” Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unraveled. We will be reading in 3 parts to discourage a 4 day, caffeine fueled binge read the week the before the meetup. Hope you can join us!
