Novel Night

hoboken-novel-night.jpgA Literary Dining Event to benefit the Hoboken Public Library

Held Saturday, October 13, 2007, when 16 Hoboken hosts open their homes for dinner, followed by dessert and coffee at Amanda’s Restaurant. Guests get to choose their dinner from a list of book-related dinners.

“Dinners are based on a variety of novels and non-fiction works, with appropriate-and delectable-meals to match. A list of the dinners appears on the website listed below. Guests indicate their top five dining choices in advance and will be assigned to dinners on a first-come, first-served basis as space permits.”

Tickets cost $100 and all proceeds will be used for the preservation and conservation of invaluable fragile materials in the Hoboken Public Library’s historical collection.

The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Hoboken Public Library. For more information, go to www.hobokenfol.org/novelnight.html .

Litterboken — from what I’ve read so far, it looks like I’ll be ok if I avoid the wine. 🙂

[quote comment=”111306″]Just got my first choice! Not a novel, but a play, actually: Arsenic and Old Lace. I already took out the script from the library will have to read it this week.

I’ve been slogging through the audiobook of Virginia Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse,” one of my other choices; the reader is excellent, and I doubt I would have made it this far (about 60% in a month) reading it, as it is more like epic poetry than a novel in the weaving back and forth.[/quote]

So your dinner isn’t going to be arsenic, is it? Just kidding. This sounds like a fun event.
