December Book Club Pick!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to our November Book Club discussion, and made it one of our best yet! Now, we're excited to announce our selection for December: Niccolo Ammaniti's As God Commands.

The economically depressed village of Varrano, where Cristiano Zena lives with his hard-drinking, out-of-work father, Rino, is a world away from the picturesque towns of travel-brochure Italy. When Rino and his rough-edged cronies Danilo and Quattro Formaggi come up with a plan to reverse all their fortunes, Cristiano wonders if maybe their lives are poised for deliverance after all. But the plan goes horribly awry. On a night of apocalyptic weather, each character will act in a way that will have irreversible consequences for themselves and others, and Cristiano will find his life changed forever, and not in the way he had hoped.

Please join us on Tuesday, December 15th at 7 pm for what's sure to be a fascinating discussion--and, as always, for some light refreshments. See you there!
