Brunch for Bibliophiles: Contemporary Literature with UMOCA

Sun, Jun 24
  • 327 W. 200 S., Salt Lake City, UT 84105
Join us Sunday, June 24th for a book club and social hour hosted by UMOCA. Finca will offer a mimosa and/or bloody mary special + a Tortilla Española at a special price exclusively for the book club. 

The book selection for June is Stay with Me: a novel by Ayobami Adebayo. Shortlisted for the 2017 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, Stay with Me is "[A] stunning debut novel…. At once, a gothic parable about pride and betrayal; a thoroughly contemporary—and deeply moving—portrait of a marriage; and a novel, in the lineage of great works by Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie…. Adebayo, who is 29, is an exceptional storyteller. She writes not just with extraordinary grace but with genuine wisdom about love and loss and the possibility of redemption. She has written a powerfully fascinating and heartbreaking book." —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times.

Stay with Me is available from local independent booksellers or the internet superstore of your choosing.

NOTE: Brunch for Bibliophiles is usually held the second Sunday of each month, but because of Father’s Day, it will be held the third Sunday in June (June 24).
