Serendip book discussion

8/20/13 Tue (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM)
Udupi
1901 University Ave., Berkeley
Contact:Jayma Brown (jaymaghana@earthlink.net)


Join us at Udupi (southern Indian cuisine) for a our discussion of Serendib by Jim Toner. According to Amazon - When John Toner, a retired Cleveland judge, decided on a whim in April 1990 to spend a month with his son in war-torn Sri Lanka, he was as much a stranger to his seventh--and last--child as he was to the hardships of life in a Third World country. Serendib chronicles the journey that follows as a father and son who had never been alone together live in close quarters, in the poorest of conditions--and replace awkwardness and distance with understanding and love.

Udupi is very close to the Downtown BART Station. It has delicious vegetarian food (can be made vegan on request) and most of if not all of it is gluten free. Everyone is welcome whether you have read the book or night. Come for a lassi, a chai, a dinner or a snack. Please RSVP to me at Jaymaghana@earthlink.net so I can make reservations and know who & how many to expect.
