Friends Don’t Let Friends Read ‘The Undertaking’ Alone

Cover ImageThe Friends Don’t Let Friends Read Alone book club is meeting this Tuesday night at Zuma Coffee House in Birmingham. Open to all, the group will be discussing The Undertaking; a beautiful body of work by local poet, author, and undertaker Thomas Lynch. Please join in for what is sure to be a “lively” discussion of Lynch’s Life Studies From the Dismal Trade.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Read Alone is sponsored by the Baldwin Public Library and makes copies of the chosen titles available to any affiliated library card holder. Keep in mind that anyone can attend – library member or not – and enjoy the company of fellow book lovers. Books on tap for the group include Alexander McCall Smith’s No.1 Ladies Detective Agency and the oh so mysterious (and yet unannounced) Everyone’s Reading selection for this year.

If you are interested in attending, the group will meet at 7:00pm on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at the Zuma Coffee House which is located at 207 S. Old Woodward in Birmingham. For more information contact Kathryn Bergeron (
