But nothing beats being in the room
with the music & the musicians!

Thursday, August 14th – 7:00 pm
looking for a book club?

Try ours!  Anywhere from a half dozen to a dozen people show up once a month (two of them have been coming for more than 15 years! while others come and go) to discuss a wide range of books — from lightweight confections to serious fiction, issue oriented stuff, historical tomes, popular culture, the gamut…

The group now meets on the second Thursday of each month.
August 14th, the book is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s much acclaimed Americanah, a novel riding high on the best seller lists.
For the September 11th meeting, the group will discuss British author Rose Macaulay’s classic romp, The Towers of Trebizond, published in 1956.

Much deference is given to new members in selecting something for the group to read.  Usually, the group has two months’ reading lined up at any given time.  At each meeting, they kick around what they might be interested in discussing a couple of months down the line and reach consensus among those present.  Bird & Beckett offers participants a 10% discount on the book club selections, and much appreciates their patronage.

Come on a whim, stay if you enjoy it.  We think you will.

The Independent Musicians Alliance

Gigging musicians! You have nothing to lose but your lack of a collective voice to achieve fair wages for your work!
The IMA can be a conduit for you, if you join in to make it work.
