Pinney Evening Book Group discusses Dear Committee Members by Schumacher @LELC

Pinney Evening Book Group discusses Dear Committee Members by Schumacher @LELC

Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr)
Tuesday, Aug 27, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The Pinney Book Group hosts a discussion of Dear Committee Members by Julie Schumacher. New attendees always welcome. Note: meeting is at Lake Edge Lutheran Church (4032 Monona Dr.).
Synopsis:
In short, Jason Fitger's life is a tale of woe, and the vehicle this droll and inventive novel uses to tell that tale is a series of hilarious letters of recommendation that Fitger is endlessly called upon by his students and colleagues to produce, each one of which is a small masterpiece of high dudgeon, low spirits, and passive-aggressive strategies (from Amazon).
