BRUNCH FOR BIBLIOPHILES: CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE WITH UMOCA
327 W 200 S
Salt Lake City, UT 84101
Join us Sunday, Sept. 9th for a brunchy book club and social hour hosted by UMOCA. Finca will offer a special Mimosa and/or Bloody Mary exclusively for the club.
We will start at 10:30 AM sharp, but hope you’ll come by as early as 10 AM to get to know your fellow book club members.
The book selection is ‘There There’ by Tommy Orange. ‘There There’ is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen. It’s “masterful . . . white-hot . . . devastating” (The Washington Post) at the same time as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to put down. Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.
Membership in Brunch for Bibliophiles is free, but each person will be responsible for their own book and tab at Finca.
