What we’re about
We are a book club meeting in Williamsburg and Greenpoint with a mix of longtime members and brand new folks each month. You are warmly invited to join us.
Our books are decided by monthly vote, and can be of any genre. After reading, we'll get together on the second Wednesday of the month at a local Williamsburg bar to discuss. The discussion is causal and unpretentious and you are welcome to participate to whatever extent you prefer.

About the book:
Jim and Daisy Harker are a young, well-to-do Californian couple with the sort of domestic happiness that others can only aspire to. But a darkness exists at the outer edges of Daisy's mind and she has no idea why it's there. In a series of reoccurring nightmares she wanders a cemetery, eventually finding her own gravestone. According to the dream, December 2nd, 1955 is the day she died. Street smart but honorable, Stevens Pinata is a man with his own mysteries. When a pretty young woman like Daisy Harker comes into his office with a crazy request to "find her lost day" he is intrigued. He is too decent to take advantage of a crazy woman, but Mr. Harker is a wealthy man and who is Pinata to turn down money? What unfolds is a masterpiece of suspense and one of the books that forever changed the domestic thriller. Millar's razor sharp prose cuts a masterful plot and slashes at the racism, sexism, and entitlement endemic to an era otherwise celebrated for its prosperity.
