Giovanni's Room | James Baldwin
post image

Sorry to break the rules. I neglected day9 #Pub of #SavvySettings because I couldn't think of anything -- then it hit me- Giovanni's Room - the book that established Baldwin's reputation as a great American writer overnight! While his classic Go Tell It On the Mountain. is another tough reckoning with #Church, Day21 Brilliant stylist. Powerful emotions. @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Eggs Agreed! Perfect 👍🏼 10mo

#savvysettings #Pub #day9

In the Tagged book, pubs making craft beer or selling it, are featured. I learned so much about what goes into making craft beer! The Cracker Barrel is the pub at the end of my street. A gathering place for sports watching, meetings, neighborhood fun, motor cyclists, and even our HS end of year staff party. (pre Covid)

Suet624 My area of Vermont is chock full of local breweries. Too bad I don‘t drink anymore. 11mo
Eggs Sounds so fun 🍻 11mo

The Tender Bar: A Memoir | J. R. Moehringer
post image

Of course, the book was better than the movie, but the memoir is a kind look back at relationships J.R. formed with the men at the #pub as he grew up with a mostly absent and always unreliable father. I must have been about 5 or 6 when my dad's buddies would set me up on the bar and bring me treats while my dad took his turn bowling. Pic of our nearby hole-in'the-wall dive with great food!.

Beowulf: A New Translation | Maria Dahvana Headley
post image

The timeless tale of a mead hall, part community center part #pub of its time, under siege by a monster & the ruthless ambition that tempts those in power. #savvysettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

Addison_Reads Have you read this translation? I've had my eye on it for a while. 11mo
vivastory @Addison_Reads My favorite is still the Seamus Heaney, but I think that this one is worthwhile. Headley trims away some of the extraneous historical passages making it leaner in parts. Although it doesn't have quite the staying power of the Heaney, it's an interesting version that's pretty quick read. 11mo
Eggs 👏🏻 Great choice👌🏼 11mo

Branwen I love the Heaney translation but this one looks really good too! 11mo
Branwen We studied Beowulf a lot in my History of the English Language when I was in college. I can still remember my professor reading passages of this in Old English and it still gives me goosebumps to this day! So magical! 11mo
LindaLappin @vivastory love the Heaney translation. 11mo

#SavvySettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

This was the first thing that came to mind for #Pub. Unfortunately, I only read the first book in the series and I only watched half of the first episode of the show. I couldn't get into either.

vivastory My ex really enjoyed the show. I watched a couple of episodes & just didn't get it🤷‍♂️ 11mo
Addison_Reads @vivastory I couldn't get past the terrible Louisiana accents and it overall just felt like a bad soap opera. But then lots of people don't enjoy the weird horror that I do, so to each his/her own. 😁 11mo
vivastory A bad soap opera is a good way to describe it. But as you say, people enjoy different types of horror. 11mo

Fr3NcHtOaSt Loved the book series and the show. Also loved her other series Midnight Texas. It‘s a shame the show was canceled after 2 seasons. 11mo
Eggs Perfect 👍🏼 11mo
Addison_Reads @Fr3NcHtOaSt many of my friends loved both the series and the show as well and her other series, I just couldn't get into them. 11mo
