BBC This Month, and Assorted Tidings


After much poetic back and forth, the site of book club has now been determined. Tim will be hosting (1419 Elizabeth) at 7:30 this Wednesday.  Thanks for hosting again, Tim.

In other news, our transition to a group made up entirely of married 40ish men with children is now complete.  Mike Cevarr (AKA Newest Mike) will be marrying his longtime partner Kirk Fordam in a ceremony in Washington D.C. next Saturday, accompanied by their two sons, Lukas and Levi.  Mike and Kirk met in college and have been together for 25 years.  In keeping with BBC tradition for all happy events, we will celebrate their wedding during this week's meeting with a ceremonial discussion of "The Wire."  Congratulations, Mike and Kirk!

Mike Eber and Mark Lewis, thank you for your patience this month (and many other months).  June is your reward, when BBC will be making a sharp turn towards the literary with "In the Shape of a Boar," by Lawrence Norfolk.  A quick scan of the reviews on Amazon, while very positive, also frequently use words like "inaccessible," "juggernaut," "tour de force," and "incomprehensible," so I wouldn't dawdle on this one. The Kindle app, which now creepily tells me how long a book is in hours and minutes based on my reading speed, claims 4 hours 45 minutes.  Your mileage may vary.

See you this week.
