It's a brand new year, and you know what that means: time to challenge ourselves to adhere to a little more discipline in our attempts to cultivate a better self. I know, it's a process. But we're here to help! If you already enjoy reading, refine your tastes by joining Writers & Books' Plüb Book Club, where you can meet with other bibliophiles from the community and from the University of Rochester's literary publishing house, Open Letter Press. OLP publishes 12 books each year, connecting readers with great international authors and their works. Learn more at openletterbooks.org.
On Wednesday, January 2, 8:30 p.m., meet at the Tap & Mallet (381 Gregory St.) for an informal discussion of Franz Kafka's "Amerika." Read whichever translation you'd like, and show up to discuss with the group. This event is free to attend; for more information, call 473-2590, or visit wab.org.
