Park Road Books Book Clubs:
The Park Road Books Book Club will be reading The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell for their July meeting. Rose Baker is an orphaned young woman working for her bread as a typist in a police precinct on the lower East Side. Every day Rose transcribes the confessions of the gangsters and murderers that pass through the precinct. While she may disapprove of the details, she prides herself on typing up the goriest of crimes without batting an eyelid. But when the captivating Odalie begins work at the precinct Rose finds herself falling under the new typist's spell. As do her bosses, the buttoned up Lieutenant Detective and the fatherly Sergeant. As the two girls' friendship blossoms and they flit between the sparkling underworld of speakeasies by night, and their work at the precinct by day, it is not long before Rose's fascination for her new colleague turns to obsession. Book club participants will receive 20% off the $16.00 price.

The Park Road Books Geek Book Club!
The Park Road Books Geek Book Club meets the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm. Join us on July 8th. We will be reading Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy. Book club participants will receive 20% off the $14.99 price.
The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club is held at the bookstore on the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Join us on July 29th. The Park Road Books Foodie Book Club will be reading A Fork In the Road by Lonely Planet Travel. Join us at the table for this 34-course banquet of original stories from food-obsessed writers and chefs sharing their life-changing food experiences. The dubious joy of a twinkie, the hunger-sauced rhapsody of fish heads, the grand celebration of an Indian Wedding feast; the things we eat and the people we eat with remain powerful signposts in our memories, long after the plates have been cleared. Tuck in, and bon appetit! Participants will receive 20% off the $15.99 price. Please join us at 7:00 PM.
