ulysses_covFive years ago, my friends started a book club. But since that inaugural gathering, we have yet to hold another one.

Part of the reason might be that the first book we chose was Ulysses, which says a lot about my friends. I went to the first meeting and then begged out, not finding the time to plow through the dense narrative while studying for my master’s exit exams.

I still have Ulysses on my shelf, and I always feel a pang of guilt for not reading it yet.

While I currently read a lot of nonfiction, I often fall behind on fiction and end up combing for recommendations. That’s why I was excited to find that the Tattered Cover LoDo offers a Book Club Happy Hour tonight at 6 p.m., where TC staff and publishers’ sales reps talk about selections that serve well as book club choices. (I wonder what they’d say about Ulysses?)

The event is free—though the TC asks that you reserve your spot by calling 303-322-1965 x2739—and wine and snacks are provided.
