We've finalized the date, time and venue for the first ice breaker meeting for our book club, as well as its selection. Starting out with Daniyal Mueenuddin's short story collection, In Other Rooms, Other Wonders that easily won a majority vote in the poll we set up for this reason. The Case of Exploding Mangoes followed in second place.
The reason we're calling the first meet an "ice breaker" is so that all participants can meet up, introduce themselves and generally just mingle, talk about books, words, whatever comes to mind really. The reason we're putting in the directions on the blog is to invite people who haven't registered and who aren't sure if they will and give them a chance to sample out the crowd.
So come along, bring in a friend or two and see if you can't appreciate things. Here's the invitation to formalize things:
The What: Book Club Ice Breaker
Then When: Sunday, May 24th @ 5 PM
The Where: Mocca Coffee, 2nd Floor Kohsar Market (it's above Gloria Jeans and the entrance is on the extreme left side of Kohsar Market)
The Who To Get In Touch Withs: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you guys there!
