May 2017 Reading & Tasting


Somehow it became May 1st, so I have another book and wine for you. The Leavers by Lisa Ko comes out in hardcover tomorrow, and I've already heard good things. The story is about a mother and a son separated by powerful forces-- the boy grows up in the Bronx and his mother is an undocumented Chinese immigrant who disappears one day, without explanation. I haven't started reading yet, but I hear that once you start it's hard to put down. 


To pair with it, let's drink any wine from Croatia. Why Croatia? Wellllllll... our very own book club member is getting married this month, and honeymooning in Croatia, so we'll be celebrating in her honor!
