Literature enthusiasts are invited to turn the pages of James Baldwin’s captivating novel, If Beale Street Could Talk, during Posman Books and City Winery’s February Books & Booze on Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Marc Stiles, Posman Book’s General Manager, will lead a riveting discussion among fellow avid readers about a heart-wrenching love story where passion and sadness are inevitably intertwined.
