We are a group of people who enjoy reading great books while indulging in a nice glass of wine or cup of coffee. The goal of this group is to make friends with others who are open to literature that is seriously heartfelt, comedic, suspenseful, has ridiculous dialogue and everything in-between. There will be a new book each month and we will meet at the vero coffee & gelato bar at the Mariano's on Lawrence. If you have a book you'd like to suggest - please do so! It's all about collaboration!
As a general rule, if you have been a member for 3 months or more but have not a attended or RSVP and are a no-show twice within a six month period, you will be removed. We look forward to seeing you!
This month we will be discussing "The Feather Thief" by Kirk Wallace Johnson
I believe Book Riot contributing editor Jamie Canaves describes it best:
You probably just had a thought about how uninteresting reading about bird feathers is but let me just tell you this book is a page-turner! I felt like I’d already read 10 books worth of information and adventure just with the beginning of the book—a museum heist by a 20-year-old flutist, and historical expeditions with everything from thieving ants, to Charles Darwin, and blackmail! And that is literally just the opening. That museum heist, which emptied out drawers for hundreds of bird specimens, got the attention of Kirk Wallace Johnson, who wanted to know why in the world would someone steal so many bird feathers from a museum?! The story is fascinating, slightly bananapants, and it has plot twists! The exploration of obsession and man’s destructive need to conquer and own nature certainly had me hooked.
All the Details!
Location is TBD - stay tuned!
As a general rule, if you have been a member for 3 months or more but have not attended or RSVP'd and are a no-show twice within a six month period, you will be removed. Please have at least have snuck a peak at the book we’re chattin’ about so you can engage in the conversation and show-off what awesome smarts you have.
