“To be able to talk to your heart’s content about a book you like with someone who feels the same way about it is one of the greatest joys that life can offer.”
― Haruki Murakami
Until last weekend, I hadn’t offered to a host a Lit Lunch for a number of reasons, among them my painfully small one-bedroom apartment and unsightly couches from the early 90s that have been slashed to bits by cat claws. But I put these issues of vanity aside, stocked up on wine, and had the better half craft up a killer cheese platter.
I’ve written before about how Hamilton seems to be brimming with like-minded and passionate people, and our monthly Lit Lunches always confirm that. Whether we’re chatting about upcoming book releases, festivals, or just talking about books we’ve read and loved (or hated), it’s always a casual, yet engaging, afternoon with a changing cast of characters, good food, and lots of wine.
We’re always happy to welcome new faces!
