Bourbon Book Club
April 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Bourbon Book Club attendees will discuss The Temple of the Golden Pavilion by Japanese novelist Yukio Mishima. Because of the boyhood trauma of seeing his mother make love to another man in the presence of his dying father, Mizoguchi becomes a hopeless stutterer. Taunted by his schoolmates, he feels alone until he becomes a temple acolyte in Kyoto, where he becomes obsessed by the temple’s beauty. The Book Club discussion will be complemented by a bourbon selected and provided by the Whiskey Attic. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance. Copies of The Temple of the Golden Pavilion can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop.
