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!

Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging by Sebastian Junger

A little non-fiction dandy this time. Something to ponder for sure. Second meeting will be added as needed. Another new location as well, Fusion Taps. "Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, TRIBE explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning."

The Gate to Women's Country by Sheri S. Tepper - Meeting #1

Heckle Alehouse - by Karens on opposite end of building

A nice change up after some non-typical Books and Booze Folsom reads this year. This one seems quite interesting. "Since the flames died three hundred years ago, human civilization has evolved into a dual society: Women’s Country, where walled towns enclose what’s left of past civilization, nurtured by women and a few nonviolent men; and the adjacent garrisons where warrior men live—the lost brothers, sons, and lovers of those in Women’s Country. Two societies. Two competing dreams. Two ways of life, kept apart by walls stronger than stone. And yet there is a gate between them. . ." Steve ============================ August 2.
