PBR Book Club Announces Our Full Spring Slate!

We may not (ever) have a Wiki page, but nonetheless we remain a REAL book club which sometimes appears halfway professional and plans things in advance. 

Here's what is on tap for spring.  (Apparently we have an oral fixation).

March:  Zadie Smith's White Teeth.  It seems that not a single person in PBR Book Club has read this practically canonical post-colonial tome?  Well, hop to it.  Hopefully it doesn't feel TOO much like course work.

April:  James Hannaham's Delicious Foods.  This novel is partly narrated by crack cocaine.  Will this be the most unusual narrator we've encountered in any selection so far?

 May:  Han Kang's The Vegetarian, a "mesmerizing mix of sex and violence" that may well permanently scar us all.


All that AND the possible return of a two-month summer "big book" read?  It's a good time to join PBR Book Club.

PBR Book Club Goes Normcore; or, Organization is So Hip!

PBR Book Club has gotten so organized, what is evening happening?!

This February we tried something new and crazy — Nog and I brainstormed some future picks in advance, and then we all discussed them calmly and collectively at the Tap as a group, arriving at a consensus for April and May picks. I know.

PBR Book Clubbers: this living list lives here for you to check out at any time. Hit me up with ideas for anything you wanna add, and if it's a good fit to be a contender for us, I'll add it. Then, every month, we can choose from the pool of options after we're all drunk on PBR.

We're also making an effort to be more inclusive with our picks this year, so that's exciting too.

high five,
your fearless co-captain, Smalls
