First off, let's say this in-store book club is open to anyone, man or woman. The reading choices will be books that generally appeal to male readers.
Members or interested attendees should send their name and email address to Jim Parina at firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be notified of any last minute changes. The group tries to meet the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m.

Every Thursday morning for two years in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Azar Nafisi, a bold and inspired teacher, secretly gathered seven of her most committed female students to read forbidden Western classics. Some came from conservative and religious families, others were progressive and secular; some had spent time in jail.
