Manayunk Book Club December Meetup

After celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, and/or National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, come out to Han Dynasty for the last book club of the year! 

Our final 2013 pick is Bel Canto by Ann Patchett."Somewhere in South America, at the home of the country’s vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera’s most revered soprano, has mesmerized the international guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening—until a band of gun-wielding terrorists breaks in through the air-conditioning vents and takes the entire party hostage. But what begins as a panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, as terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and people from different countries and continents become compatriots."

This book got a lot of buzz and won some awards when it was released, so hopefully it will give us a lot to talk about. And for holiday cheer,
don't forget our party on the 14th:

    Hi! I just had to change my RSVP. Company came to town. Can't make it. Got through the book though. Hope it's a great discussion.
