What we're about

The Books and Booze Folsom book club is for anybody interested in reading books, meeting new people, enjoying a drink, having a good time, and expressing opinions. All books are welcome as are all people. Come join us for an intellectual discussion (or not!) on the book of the month.

Everybody has the ability to plan and schedule their own meetup if they want to. I only plan the monthly meetup as I do not have time to do more than that, so please feel free to schedule your own if you wish!

City of Thieves by David Benioff - Indoor Meeting

Out of Bounds Craft Kitchen and Biergarten

Hi all. Probably the last book of the year, but maybe one more short one after this. City of Thieves by David Benioff (of Game of Thrones fame) wrote this historical fiction story based during the World War II Siege of Leningrad back in 2008. I started it and it is not a boring war story. Billed as a coming of age story, set in a war zone. Like Stay, with bombs. Rest of 2020 if time allows: First book of 2021 will be "The Blade Itself" by Joe Abercrombie. A couple of us in the club have read it, and have agreed that is is quite the romp. An edgy, adult fantasy quest novel with some of the most memorable characters ever. If you like anti-heroes, this is your book. There is sword play, orcs, and a tiny bit of magic. It's over 500 pages, so throwing it out now so that everyone can find it and read it. The good news is that if you really like it, it's a trilogy. :-)
