November: Heartburn

HeartburnOur November book is by Nora Ephron, a woman who knows how to make us laugh and long for love with her films and books. She brought Julie & Julia to the screen, and also Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail.

We’re reading Heartburn, a novel about a cookbook author whose husband leaves her for another woman when she’s seven months pregnant. Heartburn is inspired by Ephron’s own life—she was pregnant when she found out that her second husband, Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein, was having an affair with a mutual friend. (Bernstein threatened to sue Ephron over Heartburn, but never followed through.) Though the book is about a breakup, Ephron manages to make it funny. Heartburn became a film in 1986, starring Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

Join us for a conversation about Heartburn on Tuesday, November 8 at 6pm, at Max’s Delicatessen, 3431 Colonnade Parkway.

Just a note: We don’t traditionally read a book in December—we’ll have a party instead. Stay tuned for details about our December party and our 2012 book selections.

    Sometimes i experience some really bad heartburn. The only solution to heartburn is to take some antacid and watch your food intake. ,,””‘
