McNally Jackson and Time Out New York Present: Ask Me About... Catch-22

Ask Me About… is a new event presented by Time Out New York and McNally Jackson which gives book casual readers and bookworms alike an excuse to tackle that classic they've just never read. Hosted by TONY's Books editor Matthew Love and housed on the lower level of McNally Jackson, the free bi-monthly event is part lecture, part book club, part show and part social occasion. Writers or public figures who are passionate about the chosen classic will deliver introductory lectures. The crowd will be divided into groups and given certain aspects of the text to discuss. Actors will put on short, silly scenes which illustrate crucial moments of the plot; musicians or poets will present works based on the work in question. Once the presentations are over, participants will hang around, drink wine, talk about the book at length and offer suggestions for the next novel. Our first book will be satiric touchstone Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Our tale for the early fall will be Melville's nautical epic Moby-Dick.The first twenty people to RSVP get a free copy of Catch-22! We'll be selling copies of the book at ten percent off.  RSVP: askmeaboutbookclub@gmail.com
