RSVP! Books & Beer: Boxers & Saints by Gene Luen Yang
A new book club is forming for grown-ups!
Where: Our inaugural meeting will be at Cato's Ale House, 3891 Piedmont Ave, Oakland, CA 94611.
When: Sunday, September 14th, 2pm
About: We'll generally be meeting on a weekend day in a local cafe (Brunch & Books) or pub (Books & Beer) or maybe a local bookstore (Books & Books). We will discuss mostly Young Adult books like The Book Thief, Eleanor and Park, Hunger Games, some graphic novels, or maybe titles you missed in your younger days like Catcher in the Rye. We can also loosely organize some field trips to author talks and movies. It'll be casual. Let us know if you're interested, have book or meeting spot suggestions. Call, ask at the front desk, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
