Join us at the Gingerman downtown at 6pm Wednesday May 6 as we continue our high tech trek into the Sci-Fi genre. This is one of my all time favorite novels, so I’m super excited to see how it reads 20+ years later.
We’ll be meeting in September to discuss Flannery O’Connor’s short story collection: “A Good Man is Hard To Find.” The fun begins at 6 pm on September 17 at the Gingerman. I’m looking forward to the discussion (and to perhaps picking something a bit lighter as our Halloween reading!) See you there.
We’ll be meeting in August to raise a glass in memory of Maya Angelou. Join us at the Gingerman at 6 pm on Wednesday August 6 as we discuss “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”
My father gave me a lot of stuff during his time here on earth, and one of my favorites is the enjoyment of a good Elmore Leonard novel. This month, I get to share that enjoyment with Beer and Crumpets. We’ll be assembling next on Wednesday May 28 to discuss Elmore Leonard’s “Get Shorty”. Join us at
6 pm at the Gingerman downtown 7:00 pm at the Crown and Anchor on San Jacinto as we get our Noir on. (SCHEDULE AND LOCATION CHANGE!!!)
We’ll be meeting next at the Gingerman on Wednesday April 23 at 6pm. We’ll be discussing Wade Davis’ creepy ethnobotanical adventure tale, the serpent and the rainbow. So far it’s a definite page-turner. Hope to see you there!
This month we’re reading an ethnographic history of New Orleans’ founding by Shannon Dawdy. Did you know that the French Quarter once had a moat around it and that an early City Planner beat a guy up and threw him in jail when he refused to move his house out of the way of a proposed roadway? http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/B/bo5806997.html
We’ll be meeting to discuss this and more at the Gingerman downtown at 6 pm on Wednesday March 5. You should join us!
We’ll be getting together on January 29, 2014, at the Gingerman starting at 5:30. We’ll be discussing Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Love in the Time of Cholera. We’ll also be figuring out what to read next, so bring your ideas. I am loving this book. I’m particularly enjoying how vividly present the setting is. Makes me realize I don’t have a clue about Columbia. Wow, what an amazing history! http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartagena,_Colombia. See you on the 29th!
We had a great first meeting last month and will be doing it again after the Thanksgiving Holiday. We’ll meet next on December 4, 2013 at 5:30 pm at the Gingerman downtown. We’ll be discussing short stories by Sandra Cisneros and Jorge Luis Borges. Click on the syllabus for more information.
