Event Spotlight: Happy Birthday to Us!

This week I'm going to take a moment to toot our own horn - tonight's Book Club meeting marks three years since we first started getting together to discuss the wealth of local literature our city provides. From angsty punk adolescents to cyborg bounty hunters to a depression-era circus, we've had some interesting and exciting travels. To celebrate the past three years and to thank all of you who have joined and supported us, both online and in real life, we welcome you to enjoy some desserts and beverages with us as we discuss our current book, Middlesex. We look forward to discovering more local classic and emerging work with you in the years to come. 7:30pm tonight at the Book Cellar, 4736 N. Lincoln Ave.
