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!

Earth Unaware: The First Formic War by Orson Scott Card - Meeting #2

Any science fiction fans out there? I know a few of you are not for sure. Sorry. But really, sci-fi is any story, from anytime, only in the future. So maybe try one. Maybe even this one. Link to the book description: http://a.co/d/0Aag5My RSVP reminder! Please, pretty please, do not rsvp unless you seriously plan on attending the meeting. Not just a maybe, not because you receive the announcement email and see a spot open and you grab it up like a black friday tv deal. I've seen a few names lately that have been taking spots, only to cancel a day or so before. Yes, I've made the meetings smaller, so they are a bit harder to get into. But the discussions are better because we can all hear each other easier. So play nice bookies. :-) Mahalo, Steve ======================= UPCOMING BOOK INFO ======================= September 2.

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Heckle Alehouse - by Karens on opposite end of building

Stealing this idea from Sacramento B&B as I've never read it and we are moving into the spooky time of the year. I vaguely remember the book from when I was a kid, and I remember it being pretty creepy, especially for a Disney movie. And it appears that it might be free on Hoopla. Check that out.
