What is the book we will read and discuss: Don’t Stop the Carnival, by Herman Wouk
It’s every parrothead’s dream: to leave behind the rat race of the workaday world and start life all over again amidst the cool breezes, sun-drenched colors, and rum-laced drinks of a tropical paradise.
It’s the story of Norman Paperman, a New York City press agent who, facing the onset of middle age, runs away to a Caribbean island to reinvent himself as a hotel keeper. (Hilarity and disaster — of a sort peculiar to the tropics — ensue.)
Where to get the book: The book is available at Amazon.com and other retailers. Please read the book and be prepared to discuss it.
Cost of Participating: Free!
