Park Road Books Book Clubs:
The Park Road Books Book Club will be reading & Sons by David Gilbert for their August meeting. The funeral of Charles Henry Topping on Manhattan’s Upper East Side would have been a minor affair (his two-hundred-word obit in The New York Times notwithstanding) but for the presence of one particular mourner: the notoriously reclusive author A. N. Dyer, whose novel Ampersand stands as a classic of American teenage angst. But as Andrew Newbold Dyer delivers the eulogy for his oldest friend, he suffers a breakdown over the life he’s led and the people he’s hurt and the novel that will forever endure as his legacy. He must gather his three sons for the first time in many years—before it’s too late. Book club participants will receive 20% off the $16.00 price.
The Park Road Books Book Club meets in the store the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Join us on August 5th.
The Park Road Books Geek Book Club!
The Park Road Books Geek Book Club meets the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm. Join us on August 12th. We will be reading Kiln People by David Brin.In a perilous future where disposable duplicate bodies fulfill every legal and illicit whim of their decadent masters, life is cheap. No one knows that better than Albert Morris, a brash investigator with a knack for trouble, who has sent his own duplicates into deadly peril more times than he cares to remember. But when Morris takes on a ring of bootleggers making illegal copies of a famous actress, he stumbles upon a secret so explosive it has incited open warfare on the streets of Dittotown. Book club participants will receive 20% off the $7.99 price.
The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club is held at the bookstore on the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Join us on July 29th. The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club will be reading A Fork In the Road by Lonely Planet Travel. Join us at the table for this 34-course banquet of original stories from food-obsessed writers and chefs sharing their life-changing food experiences. The dubious joy of a twinkie, the hunger-sauced rhapsody of fish heads, the grand celebration of an Indian Wedding feast; the things we eat and the people we eat with remain powerful signposts in our memories, long after the plates have been cleared. Tuck in, and bon appetit! Participants will receive 20% off the $15.99 price. Please join us at 7:00 PM.
