Do you love books? Well, so do I! That's why I created the What's Happening Myron Book Club. Our current selection is "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James.
Set largely in Seattle, it is the first of a trilogy that traces the relationship between a college graduate and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It's pretty explicit, if you like that kind of thing. However, I've actually gotten about a quarter of the way through it and it's pretty interesting so far.
The next book club meeting is July 7 at McAlisters at Poplar and Highland at 4 p.m. We will not only discuss this book, but will choose another book for the next month as well. You still have plenty of time to pick up a copy and join us.
Bartlett Comedy Spot
Comedian Steve Brown makes his way to the Bartlett Comedy Spot this weekend for multiple big shows beginning Friday night (June 29).
Born in Detroit and raised in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Brown has also traveled and performed with the likes of J. Anthony Brown, Eddie Griffin, Martin Lawrence, Bill Bellamy and Rickey Smiley. No matter who takes the stage before or after him, his act is a tough one to precede or to follow.
The Bartlett Comedy Spot is located at 5709 Raleigh-LaGrange. For more information, call (901) 590-3620.
One last note
It's going to be another action-packed weekend for yours truly. I feel like I'm on tour.
I'll be helping to celebrate the birthdays of a couple of good friends of mine, Carolyn Wooten from Coldwater, Miss., and my good friend and brother, Toye Bogard. Earlier that afternoon, I will be hanging out at the Peabody for the Romance on the Rooftop Daytime Party, featuring Robin Thicke from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.
Yes, I will be armed with my camera and tape recorder and will report back to you on next week with the 411. Until then, that's what's happening.
