Broaden your literary horizons at this month’s Books & Bars when the raucous reading group chops up The Night Circus, a phantasmagorical fairy tale centering on competing magicians who run a darkly magical circus. The best seller story is definitely entertaining enough—it’s been compared to other revered fantasy works by the likes of Rowling and Gaiman—that if you haven’t read the book—yet!—it’s still worth hearing the discussion over a few beers at Moon Palace Books.
