February 16th
McNally Jackson Seaport
RSVP Required — details below

Do you regret not talking to the hot person on the train reading a book you like? Did your last Hinge date reveal that they haven't read a book since high school? Has a trusted friend recently made some decidedly sub-par reading suggestions? If you replied yes to any of the above, you are warmly invited to join us for a new McNally Jackson book club! In lieu of a traditional sit-down discussion we'll mix and mingle at our Seaport beer and wine bar and discuss a new book that we're particularly excited about, or an older title we think is worth revisiting. 

February is a big month at After Hours HQ! It's been dark and cold for an uncomfortably long time but now... it's Valentine's Day. Who better to guide us through life's vast and complex emotions than the big man himself, Marcel Proust? This month we'll be reading Swann in Love, a new translation of the standalone novella from Proust’s masterpiece, In Search of Lost Time. Reading Proust! That'll impress your date. It's a sublimely witty and poignant story of the illusions of love and desire, full of the rich social satire and penetrating insight that distinguish Proust’s style. Swann in Love is the perfect introduction to one of the world’s great novelists.

Books can be shipped out or picked up at any McNally Jackson location. Just choose your preference at check out.
