Beers and Books with Dispatch: Monthly Monday Night Book Club



Bloggers sometimes get a bum rap in the literary world. It’s like people think all we do is read Gawker, hang out at coffee shops, and come up with ways to out sass each other on Twitter. This is pretty much dead on—but we also read books. Real books. And when we’ve finished reading said books, we love to talk about them. To help scratch that itch, we’ve decided to start a monthly book club. You should definitely show up.

Here’s the deal:

Every first Monday of the month we’re going to meet at Novare Res at 6:30 pm for Beers and Books. We’ll announce the book at least two weeks ahead of time, and all you have to do is read it, show up, drink some beers, and share your thoughts. What else have you got to do on a Monday night, anyway?

Our first Beers and Books goes down Monday, December 3rd. Again, it’s at 6:30pm at Novare Res in Portland. And brace yourself muggles: our first book is J.K. Rowling’s newest novel, The Casual Vacancy.

Spread the word. Hope to see you guys there!
