The last page of a novel or memoir doesn't have to mark the end of the reading experience. Why not discuss it with others over a great meal? We'll read a book every five weeks and meet at a local restaurant to talk about what we liked, what we didn't, the author, the story, the subject matter, and maybe "who wants to share an appetizer?" We'll also vote on a book selection for the next meetup. We'll limit attendance to 12 people and see where things go. Life happens, so if you can't attend, please change your RSVP to "no." Habitual no-shows will be removed from the group. To help defray the cost of Meetup membership, $1 will be collected from each reader at each meeting. Come join us!
Here's a summary of our consensus pick for next time:
The bestselling author of The Nightingale brings readers a new story of survival, family and the way our interactions with the world affects us as people. Ernt Albright moves his family to Alaska after coming back from Vietnam. Unprepared for the winter ahead, the Albright family will find themselves completely alone and quickly falling apart as Ernt’s memories from the war begin to break him down.
We'll return to the Cask & Pig -- they have outdoor seating.
See you in August!
