Local Bookstore Launches Hard-to-Pronounce Book Club

by

If belonging to a book club isn't enough, how about joining one with a shockingly long and Latin-y name? If this sounds like your kind of club, Veritas Fine Books (4210 Emerald St.) has you covered and then some. Veritas recently announced a Thursday night book club for "Neodiscursivebibliospectopaleotomisticphiliacs" (or "Neodiscursives" for short), a term the folks at Veritas say was invented by Massachusetts bookseller Brainerd Philippson and means "those who collect, preserve and read old books." They promise wine, chocolate and lively discussion at their 7 p.m. weekly Thursday bookwormery. For more information on how you, too, can be a Neodis-something-or-other, call Veritas at 345-8670 or visit their Web site at www.veritasfinebooks.com.
