    Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
     

    Set during one of the most conflicted and volatile times in American history: the internment of American-Japanese families during World War II.
    Jamie Ford has created an unforgettable duo whose story teaches us about forgiveness and the power of the human heart. The book was awarded the 2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature and was named the #1 Book Club Pick for Fall 2009/Winter 2010 by the American Booksellers Association.

    Jamie Ford is an American author living on the West coast.  His father is of chinese ancestry, his mother is of European descent

    Venue: Geneviève's place.

     
    On January 10 , Laura Richard will present

    Lives of Girls and Women
    by Alice Munro (Canada, Nobel Prize 2013)
     

    This book, rather more a collection of would-be stand-alone stories with a common principal character, invites the reader to witness the life and world of Del, a young girl whose experiences and encounters in growing up form the basis of each "story" or section as she grows from a young girl into womanhood. The reader is compelled to experience the struggle and wonder of growing up that is common amongst all of us, in a story that is peppered with extraordinary circumstances and trials that, thankfully, relatively few of us ever have to experience.

    Lives of Girls and Women is a coming-of-age story, full of the tumultuous times one goes through on the road to growing up, the universal truths about growing up and the tragedies that are suffered by far too many of us. More than that, it is the story of place and of the complex relationships that form between those with whom people live and experience life. It is about life itself, in all its beauty and ugliness.

    Venue: Laura's place.

    Supra Bailly
    Rue du Bailli 77

    Come and join a networking time at another Brussels bar as we embark on the Second Tuesday Historic Bar Tour (but held on a Third Tuesday) social hour in the Ixelles neighborhood. So, if you are not traveling for the holidays, come join us! We found this review on TripAdvisor:

    "Supra Bailly is a pleasant historic café from the 1930s in a neoclassical building from 1890 at the corner of Rue du Bailli and Rue Simonis. The attractive facade is covered in black ceramic tiles. The interior is a bit worn, but has some nice features (stucco ceiling, chandeliers, stained glass door …). The front room is a lovely place to have a coffee or a beer. The waiters at Supra Bailly are relaxed and friendly. "

    The Historic Bar Tour events are held the second Tuesday of each month and take place at different and great locations throughout the city of Brussels.  Everyone is welcome and feel free to bring friends!

    Second Tuesday
    Historic Bar Tour

    January 9, 2018

    Poechenellekelder
    Rue du Chêne 5
    1050 Brussels (Ixelles)

    Come start the new year by joining us at another historic Brussels bar as we embark on the Second Tuesday Historic Bar Tour social hour in central Brussels. This charming and historic bar is worth a visit and you can’t miss it since it is facing the Manneken Pis! The Poechenellekelder has an immense and excellent selection of over 150 beers including local craft breweries. View the various puppets of years ago. From their website, we imagine:

               

    “Enter Poechenellekelder to embrace the millennial history of Brussels ... By pushing the door of a real tavern after meeting Manneken Pis, then sit at the table with the heirs of guilds, centenaries and hear the murmur the Brussels plotters against Philippe II, King of Spain ...”

    The Historic Bar Tour events are held the second Tuesday of each month and take place at different and great locations throughout the city of Brussels. Everyone is welcome and feel free to bring friends!
