Books & Brew Event Open to All

Women’s National Book Association (WNBA) is a national book-based networking group open to men and women; I belong to the Washington Chapter, and I’m coordinating a casual happy hour-ish get-together for members and non-members to discuss books and book-ish topics and whatever. You’re welcome to attend, but you need to RSVP to me. Here are the details:

Books & Brew
Sponsored by WNBA, DC Chapter

Tuesday, November 18, 2008
6:00 p.m.
400 Eighth Street NW, DC
Penn Quarter
Metro: Red & Yellow lines

Unwind from your day with fellow WNBA members and friends during this lively happy hour gathering and discussion of books (& etcetera). What have you read that you love? What do you recommend for book groups? What best-seller has left you cold? Which classic would you take to that proverbial desert island? Enquiring minds want to know!

Teaism offers a lovely assortment of teas, specialty cocktails and beer, sandwiches, Asian specialties, and desserts, so come hungry or come to eat lightly. (Sign me up for a ginger margarita and a salty oat cookie, for sure!)

There’s no cost—beyond your own food/beverages—but you must RSVP. Please respond to Leslie Pietrzyk at by Thursday, November 13. Questions/more information:

Please bring along a copy of a book you love—a recent find, or an old favorite…the book you think everyone in the world should read!
