Discover Harry Potter party, ‘Miranda Sings’ in Las Vegas

Bourbon Book Club meets Thursday

The Bourbon Book Club will hold its March meeting beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday at The Writer’s Block, 1020 Fremont St. Attendees will discuss “All That Man Is” by David Szalay as they enjoy a bourbon selected by The Whiskey Attic.

There’s no registration required, but you are expected to have read the book. It’s 368 pages in paperback, or 13 hours and 20 minutes as an audiobook, so if you haven’t started reading, you might want to find another way to score some whiskey. thewritersblock.org/events
