BOOKS & BOOZE: Tuesday, February 23, 3:45PM—Lund’s and Bylerly’s MEZZ

(wine bar on 2nd floor), 7171 France Avenue South, Edina, MN 55435

The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins

“A psychological thriller about a woman who becomes emotionally entangled in a murder investigation because of something she witnesses on her daily commute.”

Since 1922 Lund’s and Bylerly’s has been offering exquisite food. The “new” Bylerly’s store is designed in a very unique way. You must see to believe. Upstairs is their “mezz” which has a wine bar – great place to meet and visit. At Happy Hour they have great prices on local beers and wines – $3-5. You can bring up anything from downstairs BUT they also have great appetizers from chips and salsa to cheese and meat boards – $3-$12.

Come even if you don’t care to drink or have not read this great book. If you can’t make it until 5’ish that’s OK. We discuss first—eat later.

RSVP by Sunday, February 21st to Ann at

Next Book–April date TBD – “All the Light We Cannot See”, by Anthony Doer

“A stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.”
