This casual book club will meet at local establishments to dive into new genres and forms while getting to know other readers in a social setting. The local establishment for June, July, and August is Bacco, a small menu pizzeria in the heart of Harrisburg. Bacco's casual and comfortable atmosphere is ideal to stop in anytime for a glass of wine, cocktail, small plate, or pizza.
August's book selection is Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. This old school mystery set firmly in tech-loving, modern day San Francisco has a bit of everything – secret societies, fictionalized account of life inside of google and a beautiful marriage of modern technology and ancient books. Clay Jannon (former web designer) lands a job at a bookstore with very few patrons and even fewer purchases. His curiosity leads him to the discovery of a larger conspiracy at play!
Duration: 60 minutes. Registration not required. Location address: Bacco, 20 N. 2nd St.; Harrisburg, PA
