Books n’ Beverages Book Club

January 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In the not-too-distant future, a simple outpatient procedure to increase empathy between romantic partners has become all the rage. And Briddey Flannigan is delighted when her boyfriend, Trent, suggests undergoing the operation prior to a marriage proposal—to enjoy better emotional connection and a perfect relationship with complete communication and understanding. But things don’t quite work out as planned, and Briddey finds herself connected to someone else entirely—in a way far beyond what she signed up for.

It is almost more than she can handle—especially when the stress of managing her all-too-eager-to-communicate-at-all-times family is already burdening her brain. But that’s only the beginning. As things go from bad to worse, she begins to see the dark side of too much information, and to realize that love—and communication—are far more complicated than she ever imagined.

Join us for our Books n’ Beverages book discussion of “Crosstalk” by Connie Willis.

We’ll meet at 7:00 pm at Stix @ Legends. Order drinks, have dinner, or just snack on some appetizers.
The book is available at the front desk at the library. Since we meet at a restaurant just let us know if you’d like to attend (even if you haven’t read the book). Contact Amy @ the Library if you have any questions.
