New Meetup: South Shore Readers

From: Jessica
Sent on: Monday, January 25, 2010 4:12 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for 20ish & 30ish Boston Book Club!

What: South Shore Readers

When: Sunday, February 21,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Borders Cafe
255 Grossman Dr
Braintree, MA 02184
[masked]

For our February meeting, the South Shore readers have selected Sloane Crosley's "I Was Told There'd Be Cake": http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2195289.I_Was_Told_There_d_Be_Cake

Wry, hilarious, and profoundly genuine, this debut collection of literary essays is a celebration of fallibility and haplessness in all their glory. From despoiling an exhibit at the Natural History Museum to provoking the ire of her first boss to siccing the cops on her mysterious neighbor, Crosley can do no right despite the best of intentions-or perhaps because of them. Together, these essays create a startlingly funny and revealing portrait of a complex and utterly recognizable character that's aiming for the stars but hits the ceiling, and the inimitable city that has helped shape who she is. I Was Told There'd Be Cake introduces a strikingly original voice, chronicling the struggles and unexpected beauty of modern urban life.

We will meet in the cafe area of the bookstore and place a copy of the book on the table so that the group is easier to find.
