Join Our Virtual Book Club: First Guest is Metuchen Author Robert Kaplow


c_orsonwelles.jpgFor every ten people in town, there might be the ghost of a book club, half-formed, maybe only meeting once in a blue moon--people with great intentions who LOVE the reading but find it hard to keep on a good schedule for discussion. To make sure you find the time and get a lot out of the experience,  Metuchen Matters invites all of you who love to read to join us in our very own virtual book club on March 19 (time TBA) at the Raconteur! To make the discussion unique, the author of each book will join the club at the Raconteur, with the blessing and cooperation of Alex Dawson, for the discussion! When was the last time you read a book and then talked about it with the person who wrote it?  

We want to concentrate on New Jersey authors, so we are offering up as our first book ME AND ORSON WELLES, a beautifully-rendered, hilariously funny valentine to first love, Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater, by Metuchen's Robert Kaplow! The book has already been adapted into a film starring America's sweetheart Troy Bolton (I mean, Zac Efron!), directed by Dazed and Confused auteur Richard Linklater (US release date TBD). The book can be bought at the Raconteur and Mr. Kaplow will grace us with his presence for questions and lively discourse about his novel.

READ THE BOOK AND JOIN US FOR A GREAT DISCUSSION WITH THE AUTHOR! BUY YOUR COPY RIGHT  AT THE RACONTEUR! We are soliciting your comments on the book and your questions for Robert so sign in and let us know what you think! Your questions and responses will help guide the conversation at the book club event.

Many thanks to Robert Kaplow and Alex Dawson for helping make this endeavor possible! We look forward to reading and talking with all of you!
