Winner of the Pulitzer Price and New York Times Notable Book of 2017

Who says you can’t run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can’t say yes–it would be too awkward–and you can’t say no–it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.

QUESTION: How do you arrange to skip town?

ANSWER: You accept them all.

What would possibly go wrong? Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. And there is his last.

Because, despite all these mishaps, missteps, misunderstandings and mistakes, Less is, above all, a love story.

RSVP by December 15th  to  Once you RSVP, we will send you the address of our host home the day before the meeting.

Holiday Sip & Stroll
Friday, December 17, 7-9pm

Join us for warm drinks at a LNN member’s backyard 7-8pm, then stroll through the neighborhood to see all the beautiful holiday lights 8-9pm. Email Lara to RSVP, and she will share specific details, including location to meet, closer to the event. Pro tip: Bring a mug you can hold to drink from, that also keeps your fingers warm on the walk!

Walking Group
Tuesdays at 9:30am

Weekly location will be sent to the walking group email distribution prior to the hike. Please reach out to Debbie with questions!
