Book Group — May 15, 2014

Come enjoy an evening coffee (or wine) along with some lively discussion at BAIN’s May Book Club meeting!

This month we are reading The Buddha in the Attic (2011) by Julie Otsuka, a book that grapples with the migration of Japanese picture-brides to the U.S. in the early 1900’s, and has won a number of literary prizes.   The book, as always, is available electronically.

Book: The Buddha in the Attic (2011) by Julie Otsuka

Location: Café Antonia, located inside the Libros de Pasaje bookstore in Palermo.

Address: Thames 1762

RSVP: (Julia) – We will be calling the café the day before to reserve a large table for all of us, so please let us know to include you.

Please feel free to join us even if you don’t manage to read the book.

Important Note: We will dedicate the last 15-20 minutes of this meeting to selecting three booksto read from July to September. If you have a book to suggest to the group, please note the title and a description or review (either your own, if you’ve read the book, or from a place like Amazon, if you haven’t) so we can decide collectively which books we would like to read next.

For those who like to prepare ahead,  our June book has already been set:

June: Please Look After Mom (2009, in English 2011) by Kyung-Sook Shin

A Korean best-seller about a family’s search for their mother who vanishes one day in the crowds of the Seoul Station subway.
