Seattle Girls Pint Out says
Pints & Pages will be held Monday, February 1, 2016 at Ballard Beer Company in their upstairs loft from 6:30-8pm.

Pints & Pages is open to EVERYONE that is 21+. This is a co-ed event so please invite your friends! We are a very laid-back book club, usually chat from 6:30-7, then will talk about the book, then vote on next month's choice. You do not have to finish the book to join us.

As decided by you at the last Pints & Pages, our February book will be The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.

Goodreads' description:
"Written in his distinctively dazzling manner, Oscar Wilde’s story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the author’s most popular work. The tale of Dorian Gray’s moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novel’s corrupting influence, he responded that there is, in fact, “a terrible moral in Dorian Gray.” Just a few years later, the book and the aesthetic/moral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wilde’s homosexual liaisons, which resulted in his imprisonment. Of Dorian Gray’s relationship to autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, “Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to be—in other ages, perhaps.”
