A Tempest in a Teapot

 Rumpus in the Community Room
While the rest of Sacramento was having a quiet dinner, CapRadio Readers were having quite a conversation about The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  A more than packed house debated whether all or some of the characters were real, or imagined in this fanciful story of a circus which only operates at night.  If they were only imagined, who in the story might be real? Which characters were the most "fleshed" out? Was it the circus itself?  Are we, a room full of intelligent, well read, real people, able to suspend our own reality long enough to enjoy a fantasy? What of Ms. Morgenstern's references to Shakespearean characters?
Well, the consensus we came to was, good, bad or unbelievable, another evening of conversation, lovely wine from C. G. Diarie and goodies came to an end, and all agreed it was time very well spent.
As has been the case for all our Face to Face meetings and our bigger author events, this was standing room only.  Don't be left out. Click on the following link to become a member of CapRadio Reads and be first in line to attend all these wonderful gatherings. JOIN THE CLUB !
Thanks, as always, for joining us anytime, anywhere.  Watch this space later today for an announcement of our May title and information on how you can attend the party.
Thanks for reading.
