July Bookclub at the Shop
July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Book club is going to get back on its normal schedule for July, the last Sunday of the month. I’m also going to open the shop up for those that might like to come in person – with social distancing of course! But, wow, that seems like forever from now and so much can change! We’ll also have Zoom available as well. We’ll play it by ear :-).
This month we’re going to be reading “Sweetbitter” by Stephanie Danler. Newly arrived in New York City, twenty-two-year-old Tess lands a job working front of house at a celebrated downtown restaurant. What follows is her education: in champagne and cocaine, love and lust, dive bars and fine dining rooms, as she learns to navigate the chaotic, enchanting, punishing life she has chosen. The story of a young woman’s coming-of-age, set against the glitzy, grimy backdrop of New York’s most elite restaurants, in Sweetbitter Stephanie Danler deftly conjures the nonstop and high-adrenaline world of the food industry and evokes the infinite possibilities, the unbearable beauty, and the fragility and brutality of being young and adrift.
