Slow Reading Dinner 

When: Fri., Jan. 11, 6 p.m. 2013
Price: $40

Statistically speaking, there's a decent chance your New Year's resolution was to a) read more, b) live more intentionally, or c) meet new people. Why not knock out three birds with one stone with the latest installment of University Press Books' (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley) beloved Slow Reading Dinner series, in which a group of like-minded strangers gathers around a table for a professionally cooked meal, good wine, and a wide-ranging discussion of literature? Friday, Jan. 11's event will feature a meal prepared with local ingredients by Erick Balbuena, chef at the Musical Offering; guests are asked to bring a passage or paragraph to read aloud and then discuss. 6 p.m., $40 includes food, wine, tax, and gratuity ($15 for "students and starving artists").
