Want to join a book club, but not exactly thrilled by the idea of
having gabby TV talk show hosts telling you what to read? Try Books
& Bars, a literary club that meets every month to read and discuss
with good food and good drinks. All are welcome, even if you haven’t
read the book.
Striving to get more people reading and talking about books, the club
is now in its fourth year. Past selections vary from new bestsellers
like *Water for Elephants* to classics like *Cat’s Cradle* and
*Lolita.* The club will meet next on Tuesday, August 12th to discuss
Neil Gaiman’s bestseller *Anansi Boys.* The meeting will take place at
the Nomad World Pub on Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis. The doors
open at 6 pm for the 7 pm discussion. There will be a Happy Hour
2-for-1 deal before the meeting from 4 – 7 pm.
Books & Bars otherwise meets the second Tuesday of every month at
Bryant Lake Bowl. Upcoming books include *Zeroville* by Steve Erickson
and recent Pulitzer Prize-winner *The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao*
by Junot Diaz. For more information, visit www.booksandbars.com.
