Time & Location

Jun 02, 2024, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM

All She Wrote Books, 75 Washington St, Somerville, MA 02143, USA

About the Event

In June, our Breakfast Club will read Confidence: A Novel by Rafael Frumkin. Mark your calendar for June 2nd as we gather at All She Wrote Books to discuss this Ripley-esque romp for Pride Month!

Event Highlights:

  • Immersive Book Discussion with a Community of Enthusiastic Readers
  • Coffee and pastries from Michette

Tickets are limited to due to capacity at the bookstore, and each ticket will include either:

  • a copy of the breakfast book club pick; or 
  • general admission that includes coffee and pastries from local French bakery, Michette.

There are many ways to obtain a copy of the book (aside from your public library) — you can purchase it through allshewrotebooks.com, Bookshop.org, or Libro.fm to help support our work!

Our event has a limited capacity and we want to ensure that as many people as possible are able to attend. By letting us know that you can no longer attend, we can open up your spot to someone on our waitlist who is eager to participate.

 

"Inclusivity" isn't just a buzzword to us. We make every effort to ensure our space and events are accessible to and for everyone. If you or someone in your party needs accommodations, please email us at info@allshewrotebooks.com.

About the Book:

Best friends (and occasional lovers) Ezra and Orson are teetering on top of the world after founding a company that promises instant enlightenment in this “propulsive, cheeky, eat-the-rich page-turner” (The Washington Post) about scams, schemes, and the absurdity of the American Dream.

At seventeen, Ezra Green doesn’t have a lot going on for him: he’s shorter than average, snaggle-toothed, internet-addicted, and halfway to being legally blind. He’s also on his way to Last Chance Camp, the final stop before juvie.

But Ezra’s summer at Last Chance turns life-changing when he meets Orson, brilliant and Adonis-like with a mind for hustling. Together, the two embark upon what promises to be a fruitful career of scam artistry. But things start to spin wildly out of control when they try to pull off their biggest scam yet—Nulife, a corporation that promises its consumers a lifetime of bliss.

About the Author:

Rafael Frumkin is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the Medill School of Journalism. His first novel, The Comedown, was published by Henry Holt in 2018, and his second novel, Confidence, was published by Simon & Schuster in 2023. He lives with his partner, two cats, and one dog in Carbondale, Illinois, where he is an assistant professor of creative writing at Southern Illinois University.

Our Book Club Guidelines:

  • We strive for a thoughtful and respectful discussion of the featured book and its related themes.
  • You do not have to have finished the book to participate, but we ask that you contribute to the discussion in whatever way you feel comfortable.
  • We do not tolerate demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
