ABOUT THE EVENT:
Melville House Publishing and Brooklyn Roasting Company were talking the other day, as small companies do, and just before coming to blows, they realized something obvious, anew. Books and coffee are so great, they agreed. Totally great. Especially so when taken together.
Books. And Coffee — together, you say? Dang.
Thusly, in jubilation, a book group was born.
Join us for a monthly discussion of a Melville House book over some fine, fine free BRC coffee. This month? THE AWAKENING, by Kate Chopin.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Condemned as “sordid” and “immoral” on its publication in 1899, this story of a woman trapped in her marriage effectively ended Chopin’s career but was revived as a proto-feminist classic in the 1970s. What Newsweek calls Chopin’s “prophetic psychology” insures its timeliness today.
