Booze & Book Club Midtown Monthly Meetup

  • Nov 12, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

November's book selection is, "Zeitoun" by Dave Eggers.

From Amazon.com,

"The true story of one family, caught between America’s two biggest policy disasters: the war on terror and the response to Hurricane Katrina.
 
Abdulrahman and Kathy Zeitoun run a house-painting business in New Orleans. In August of 2005, as Hurricane Katrina approaches, Kathy evacuates with their four young children, leaving Zeitoun to watch over the business. In the days following the storm he travels the city by canoe, feeding abandoned animals and helping elderly neighbors. Then, on September 6th, police officers armed with M-16s arrest Zeitoun in his home. Told with eloquence and compassion, Zeitoun is a riveting account of one family’s unthinkable struggle with forces beyond wind and water."


Members can RSVP starting today 10/9/13


As a reminder, I'll usually email the location for the meetup either a day before the meetup or the day of the meetup.  There seems to have been a bit of a problem with last month's meetup where a few people did not receive the meetup location email.  If for whatever reason you don't have a location email by noon the day of the meetup, email me directly and I'll make sure you get the location.

    Last minute cancellation here too -- sickness has overtaken the household. So disappointed, I read the book and had a lot to say about it!

    Reading this book reminded me of the breakdown in society that I witnessed during our invasion of Grenada. Katrina was a sad commentary on the inefficiencies of government agencies. Ought to be a lesson to senators to quickly confirm the appointment of qualified agency heads rather than hold these confirmations hostage to other political agendas. I recommend we all Google "sacramento levee failures" for potential disaster in our own back yard

    Hi. I didn't think I was going so I didn't get the book. I'm still waiting for Unholy night. I guess I need a Kindle.

    It's a different day this month, yes? Don't we usually meet the first Tuesday? Just checking I'm not losing it ... I still plan to be there, wherever there may be!

      Ah, so I actually *am* losing it. Well, I guess I should be glad for the confirmation ... ??!

    I would love to try the meeting. I moved back to Cali six years ago and have yet to find the right book club "fit." "For the rest of us," speaks to me.
