Book Club: Books & Biscuits, Co.

Ah, I’ve been secretly wishing for a group of gals to start a book club for the longest! Kind of like a personal Oprah’s Book Club version. I think my prayers were answered miraculously through Books & Biscuits, Co. November, the first month of our book club’s selection was an older text, Sawāniḥ:The Oldest Persian Sufi Treatise on Love by Ahmad Ghazzali. It deals with the basic understanding of the notions of love and what true love is between the lover (man) and the beloved (higher entity=Divine) with religious implications set forth metaphorically and majestically. I don’t think mere simple words can do any justice to the text.

For our first discussion session, we met at Prince Tea House in Flushing, NY and had dinner at Kabul Kabab, which isn’t too far from the tea house either. The tea house had such a classy and elegant setting. Forget any ordinary chained cafes or whatever! I mean, I can’t believe that I actually had my first tea party. Yeah, kind of late, I know! But nonetheless, I wanted to share some photos from the meet.
