Books & Bottles, the night dedicated to those who love reading and wine, returns with a special guest: Author Heather Havrilesky, reading from her essay collection What If This Were Enough? Havrilesky is in conversation with Mickie Meinhardt of The Buzzed Word and Guernica, discussing the book, writing, and more. Wine to match the book will be served.
Books & Bottles is a monthly series with The Buzzed Word in which pre-selected books are paired with wines for a discussion on both. Book club attendees can purchase the book at McNally Jackson Williamsburg for 10% discount. All the wine offered will be available for purchase at local wine shop, Vine Wine. Free; must be 21+.
