July Book Club

Join us at Teaism in Penn Quarter on Wednesday, July 19th, to discuss “Gray Mountain” by John Grisham.

**#1 New York Times Bestseller

**Named one of the Best Books of the Year by NPR

The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired.

In a matter of days, Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal.

Come for dinner and stay for a discussion of the future of the American environment. It’s recommended to read the book before, but anyone can join the conversation.
