Join us on Wednesday, July 17th for Random House’s SOFA STORIES: PAGE-TURNERS FOR THE COUCH, BEACH AND BEYOND, presented in partnership with Burrow, BookBabesNYC, and Read It Forward.
July’s selection, EVVIE DRAKE STARTS OVER by Linda Holmes, is the summer read you didn’t know you needed. It’s “a smart romantic comedy” (Shelf Awareness) and “a delight” (Cosmopolitan.com) that you won’t want to miss. It’s been featured in Entertainment Weekly‘s Summer Book Preview, Bustle’s Best Books of the Summer, Refinery29′s Best Beach Reads of the Summer…and more, but you catch our drift.
And the best part? Holmes, the host of NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, will be in attendance and will go around to each book club discussion to talk about the novel with guests, answer questions, and sign copies.
Each month, we’ll announce a new SOFA STORY. RSVP for that month’s book club event, and we’ll send you an early copy of the book for you to dive into. Already have a copy of the book? Fantastic—just select the general admission (no book) ticket option, and you can still join the fun! (We get it. We wouldn’t want to wait to read it, either.)
Sign up by yourself, with a friend, or with your entire book club—the more, the merrier! On the day of the event, we’ll provide you with an abundance of wine, snacks, and stimulating conversation, led by BookBabesNYC. You’ll have an opportunity to go even deeper into the topics and themes of the book with friends, new and old.
