Lit Lunch Snapshots

Tuesday 26 February 2013
“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!


  1. Sounds like a fun time. I doubt I'd ever, well maybe for a few years or so, have the time to do something like that. Mrs. I seldom make it to many meetings of any sort.

    Those cup cakes look inviting and the little book worm gives me fond memories of when our children were that size.

  2. I love love love your 'kiss me somewhere dirty' print. Where on earth did you get it? I went to MAC so Hamilton has a special place in my heart.

  3. I love your picture of Juliet! You're a great photographer.

  4. Thanks Liz! She's very photogenic!

    The picture is from Mixed Media on James North! Amazing eh?
