What we're about

If you’re looking for ways to making meaningful connections with others, you’ve come to the right place! We’re a Meetup for young professionals who want to have conversations, whether it be through discussions, book groups (in bars!), trivia nights, lectures, or hands-on DIY projects. This group exists for you, and your hosts at the East Brunswick Public Library are always looking for inspiration for new events. Please contact one of the organizers if you have any ideas, and we will do our best to make them happen.

Books in Bars: Spoonbenders by Daryl Gregory

Pino's Gift Basket Shoppe and Wine Cellar

Summary: A generations-spanning family of psychics - both blessed and burdened by their abilities - must use their powers to save themselves from the CIA, the local mafia, and a skeptic hell-bent on discrediting them in this hilarious, tender, magical novel about the invisible forces that bind us. The Telemachus family is known for performing inexplicable feats on talk shows and late-night television. Teddy, a master conman, heads up a clan who possess gifts he only fakes: there's Maureen, who can astral project; Irene, the human lie detector; Frankie, gifted with telekinesis; and Buddy, the clairvoyant. But when, one night, the magic fails to materialize, the family withdraws to Chicago where they live in shame for years. Until: As they find themselves facing a troika of threats (CIA, mafia, unrelenting skeptic), Matty, grandson of the family patriarch, discovers a bit of the old Telemachus magic in himself. Now, they must put past obstacles behind them and unite like never before. But will it be enough to bring The Amazing Telemachus Family back to its amazing life?
