Please join us at Cucina Bella for September’s book club meeting to discuss Meg Wolitzer’s novel The Interestings. Even, or perhaps especially, if the last thing you read was Good Night Moon or the label on your wine bottle you opened after a particularly whine-filled day please come for the laughter, food and drinks. Cucina Bella is BYOB with only a $5 corkage fee. I’ll bring the first bottle of red! Please note that I am the new book club chair and am looking to meet new people and get fresh ideas for books and events. Reading the book helps springboard conversation, but is definitely not necessary. I hope to meet many newcomers on the 11th!
Event Location: Cucina Bella 1200 Pennsylvania Ave, Bridgeville, PA 15017
“Meg Wolitzer’s fantastic The Interestings is the book of the moment, the novel you should really read, if you haven’t already. Following an early April release from Riverhead, it’s gotten positive reviews from NPR (“juicy, perceptive and vividly written”), The New York Times (“warm, all-American and acutely perceptive”), and USA Today (“sprawling, ambitious and often wistful”), among others. It’s a New York Times best seller. Amazon named it the best book of the month for April, and Entertainment Weekly called Wolitzer “every bit as literary as Franzen or Eugenides” (who provides a book blurb for the back cover). Oprah’s O Magazine recently included the title on a list of five books women need to read before their next birthdays, a lineup that also includes John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars and Betty Friedan’s The Feminine Mystique. And Judy Blume loves it, too!”
