Lala Books monthly event pairs book talk with cocktails

LOWELL Lala Books has crafted a monthly gathering that brings readers together to chat about a good book while enjoying a cocktail.

The Boozy Bookclub meets at Warp & Weft, at 197 Market St., in Downtown Lowell on the fourth Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. for an hour of book talk.

Each month attendees read the same book to talk about during the gathering. For March, members will be reading The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett.

Anyone interested in participating can get the book at Lala Books, at 189 Market St., or through where there are also audio and e-book versions available.

To attend the gathering, register at Lala books by paying $5 to hold your space. The money is then used to buy shared appetizers. Each reader is responsible for their own bar tab.
