La Playa Books co-hosts a monthly bookclub held at The Wine Pub the first Monday of the month.

Hello Reader- Our August meeting is Monday, August 5th!

The book club will meet 6pm at The Wine Pub to discuss ‘Ritz & Escoffier’ by Luke Barr.

In a tale replete with scandal and opulence, Barr transports readers to turn-of-the-century London and Paris to discover how celebrated hotelier César Ritz and famed chef Auguste Escoffier joined forces at the Savoy Hotel in London to spawn the modern luxury hotel and restaurant.  A thrilling depiction of the Belle Epoque era just before World War I, when British aristocracy was at its peak, women began dining out unaccompanied by men, and American nouveaux riches and gauche industrialists convened in London to show off their wealth.

…and coming up for September’s book club meeting: ‘The Woman Who Smashed Codes’ by Jason Fagone.  Because of the Labor Day holiday we’ll be meeting Monday, September 9th at 6pm to discuss.
