Book Beat’s Reading Group selection for May is Selected Stories by Stefan Zweig. The Reading Group will meet on Wednesday, May 27th at 7pm in the Goldfish Teahouse (117 W 4th St #101, Royal Oak, MI 48067). Books are discounted 15% at Book Beat. All are welcome!
“Touching and delightful. Those adjectives are not meant as faint praise. Zweig may be especially appealing now because rather than being a progenitor of big ideas, he was a serious entertainer, and an ardent and careful observer of habits, foibles, passions and mistakes.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times
