The next meeting of the Twin Cities’ most unusual and interesting book club is Tuesday, December 9. Books & Bars meets at Bryant-Lake Bowl, 810 W Lake Street, in Minneapolis. Doors open at 6:00pm; the discussion begins at 7:00pm.
December’s book is Out Stealing Horses. Bookseller-turned-novelist Per Petterson’s novel was a runaway hit for St Paul’s Graywolf Press. Thomas McGuane, writing in the New York Times said, “This short yet spacious and powerful book—in such contrast to the well-larded garrulity of the bulbous American novel of today—reminds us of the careful and apropos writing of J. M. Coetzee, W. G. Sebald and Uwe Timm.”
Books & Bars is not your typical book club. We provide a unique atmosphere for a lively discussion of interesting authors, fun people, good food and drinks. You’re welcome even if you haven’t read the book.
