Once a month this group meets in Vail Public Library's Community Room to share conversation inspired by the book of the month.

Join us! in January for Books 'n' Bites featuring "The Dinner" by Herman Koch. In the novel, two brothers and their wives meet for dinner at an upscale restaurant in Amsterdam. Beneath their polite conversation, lie terrible things that need to be said. With every forced smile and every new course, the knives are quietly being sharpened. Both couples are the parents of fifteen-year-old sons. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, their children are finally brought up in conversation. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.
