Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov

Join us for a discussion of "Pnin" by Vladimir Nabokov. Pnin is a professor of Russian at an American college and his failure to grasp the subtleties of English causes him to become a running joke among his colleagues. A beautifully crafted portrait that will have readers questioning their assumptions.



Monday Night Readers

 Monday, July 27 at 6:30 at the Rock House coffee shop on 1150 Central Ave.

Girl in a Band by Kim Gordon

In Girl in a Band, the famously reserved superstar of the punk band Sonic Youth speaks candidly about her past and the future. From her childhood in the sunbaked suburbs of Southern California, growing up with a mentally ill sibling who often sapped her family of emotional capital, to New York's downtown art and music scene in the eighties and nineties and the birth of a band that would pave the way for acts like Nirvana, as well as help inspire the Riot Grrl generation, here is an edgy and evocative portrait of a life in art.
