Love wine? Love great literature? Welcome to the Athens Uncorked Well Red Bookclub!
April's selection is "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro.
As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were. Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special—and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is a modern classic.
Our bookclub meets once a month, usually on the final Sunday at 6pm. Membership includes discussion of the book, snacks, wine tasting of 2 wines that have been paired with the book and a bottle of your favorite to take with you! The book is NOT included with membership price although we do have copies available at the bar for $11.
Membership is $25. This is a PRE-PAY club (payment may be done at the time of the meeting but only if you contact us beforehand), so email us at Athensuncorked@gmail.com or stop by the bar to sign up! And remember, IT'S OK IF YOU DON'T FINISH IT!!! Come along anyways, it's a great time to spend with friends who love wine and books!
