Ray and/or On Chesil Beach - June Meetup (Silver Spring)
UPDATE (5/19/2018) : As a service to TPBCMG readers who are not liking Ray, the June Meetup is being expanded to include discussion of On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan. On Chesil Beach was the runner-up book in the poll and is short. On Chesil Beach runs 166 pages. (By comparison Ray is 128 pages.) It is envisioned that each book will be discussed for no more then 45 minutes. Overachievers will be compelled to read both books, but reading just one is the only requirement for this month's Meetup. ====================================================================== Our book for June is Ray by Barry Hannah [masked]). Nominated for the American Book Award, Ray is the bizarre, hilarious, and consistently adventurous story of a life on the edge. Dr. Ray--a womanizer, small-town drunk, vigilante, poet, adoring husband--is a man trying to make sense of life in the twentieth century. In flight from the death he dealt flying over Vietnam, Dr. Ray struggles with those bound to him by need, sickness, lunacy, by blood and by love. A word about RVSPing: As a courtesy to other members and to the restaurant where we meet, please try very hard to honor your RSVP "yes" by attending the meetup, or if you need to change your RSVP to a "no" please do so as early as possible. Thank you.

What we're about

Meet other book people in a local book club. We read a book each month from a wide variety of genres. We decide which books to read by on-line polls. The book, 501 Must Read Books, is one source for our choices. We meet on the third Thursday of each month. Come to share your opinions and observations, have something to eat and/or drink, and make new friends from the neighborhood.
