The younger sect infiltrates the set of All Booked Up to bring you news of a new book club starting Oct. 23. Bean There, Read That discusses books that appeal to young, hip professionals. And there’s even drinking (Gasp!).
For the club’s first meeting, read Little Bee by Chris Cleave (check it via the web or ask at our Reference Desk). Then, at 7pm on Oct. 23, become one of the first to join the club. Come to PTs Roasting Co. at 17th and Washburn to talk lit with like-minded people. Bring your opinions and some money for food and beverage.
Little Bee follows a Nigerian refugee, named Little Bee, back in time from the day she was “released” from an English immigrant detention center to a tragedy that happened on a Nigerian beach two years prior. The novel’s narration switches back and forth between the refugee and an Englishwoman who was with her during the beach incident. Both women have close encounters with death and ultimately are united.
“It’s a little hard to get into, but the ending makes it worth it,” said Autumn, one of the book club founders.
We’re really excited about this new book club, catering to people in their 20s and 30s. (No, we’re not strict about age.) Hope to see you at PTs on Oct. 23. Can’t make it to the book club, but want to chime in? Just leave your comment below and we’ll share it with the book club.
Next time on All Booked Up, Kathy and Diana will be back, discussing The Prophet by Michael Koryta. Stay tuned.
