The American dream. Work hard and happiness and all that is good will follow. Martin Dressler is a believer and he has found success but he still hungers for what's next and wonders if he can ever just be happy?

Martin Dressler: The Tale of an American Dreamer is a 1996 novel by Steven Millhauser. It won the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction[1] and was a finalist for the 1996 National Book Award.[2] The novel follows the exploits of a young, optimistic entrepreneur in late nineteenth century New York City. It vividly evokes its time and place through elaborate description.

As always, we'd love to have you join us, even if you haven't read the whole thing, if you've never come before, or you haven't been here in months. We don't care. We're not one of those clique-y groups. Come on by and pull up a chair.

Black Mountain has 25 lovely wines available for your drinking pleasure, tasty small plates, and a comfortable vibe. Come join us on Monday, June 16th!

Happy reading, 
-Joe

P.S. #1: Oh, about the $1 fee: Meetup charges $12+/month to maintain a Meetup group, so this is just an attempt to defray that cost. 

P.S.#2: If you do need to cancel for some reason, please do so with as much advance notice as possible. We’ve now got more than 200 members, and even with two Meetups, we may well have a waiting list for our events. By canceling as soon as you can, you enable others to participate as well, which is nice for all.

    Do you only do Pulitzer Prize winners or do runner ups get in the rotation too?
