09/09/2013 7:00 pm
Monday, Sept. 9, 7 PM
We're starting off with a bang, with one of our best-selling novels over the past year and one that has just come out in paperback. Barbara Kingsolver is a book club favorite across the nation--come find out why!
This event is free and open to the public, all are welcome, newcomers are encouraged!
Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.
Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all* be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.
All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...
Wednesday, August 6th, 2014, 7 p.m., join us as the wildly talented best-selling author Lily King joins us to present her new novel, Euphoria! Inspired by events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead, Euphoria tells the story of three trailblazing anthropologists caught in a passionate love triangle in 1930s New Guinea.
True Brew Cafe, a branch of True Brew Barista, enjoys space in our bookstore. They serve delicious coffee, tea, sandwiches, crepes, and much more. Now also with beer and wine! Have a real bookstore cafe experience.
Jana Bibi returns! Rebecca Makkai returns! Waldo...? July 23rd, 2014
Tonight! (Thursday, July 24, 7 PM) Betsy Woodman joins us to talk about (and sign copies of) the third installment in her Jana Bibi series--Emeralds Included!
... Betsy is always a fascinating guest. Even if you haven't read the
first two books, you'll want to join us for a wide-ranging conversation
about different cultures, music, travel, and language. Learn more here.
Next week! ( Wednesday, July 30, 7 PM)
Rebecca Makkai joins us to present her new novel, The Hundred-Year House--a
dazzlingly original, mordantly witty novel about the secrets of an
old-money family and their turn-of-the-century estate, Laurelfield. We
hope you'll remember Rebecca as the author of one of our best sellers
over the last few years, The Borrower, in which Lucy Hull,
a children’s librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both
kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian
Drake, runs away from home.
"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
