These August events may be of particular interest to book clubs. Bring your group to meet an author you've read, or discover new books to add to your reading list.

Thursday, August 4, 7:00 pm, Colfax Avenue
Helen Phillips, author of the critically acclaimed novel The Beautiful Bureaucrat is back! This time she lends her quirky charm to a new collection of short stories, Some Possible Solutions. In this collection, Phillips asked a series of "what ifs": What if you knew the exact date of your death? What if your city was filled with doppelgängers of you? Into these scenarios, she throws characters searching for intimacy and struggling to resolve their relationships with each other.

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book)! That means it's a true stand-out in a season of many excellent and compelling new books.
