Books on the Bus, the quarterly book club for local Metro riders, is about to have its first meetup, and there are some big-deal writers invited. This isn't your ordinary book club; you'll actually be having a thoughtful conversation about the first selection, Hotel Angeline. Though who knows, maybe after a couple glasses of wine, you could get Garth Stein to gossip about the Beacon Hill PTA.
From the organizers: "Next week, we're hosting our first Books on the Bus event [at Richard Hugo House], a celebration and discussion of our summer selection, Hotel Angeline. There will be refreshments, mingling and a short reading followed by a moderated discussion with several of the novel's authors: Garth Stein, Nancy Rawles, Jennie Shortridge, Sean Beaudoin, Karen Finneyfrock, Peter Mountford, Dave Boling, Indu Sundaresan, and Stacey Levine. We'll also announce our fall selection, a book that we're really excited to share with all of you. Doors open at 7, and the program starts at 7:30."
