Ahoy there, literary enthusiasts! Set sail for an evening of nautical revelry at the Black Cat on Friday, March 15, 2024, from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM, as Solid State Books and the Black Cat proudly present a celebration of Patrick O'Brian's Master & Commander series. Join the discussion with Angry Staff Officer, delving into the 21-volume world of Captain Jack Aubrey and Dr. Stephen Maturin. For a mere $10 entry fee, guests will immerse themselves in clips from the Master & Commander movie, explore life aboard historical frigates, and ponder the age-old question of why Russell Crowe's seafaring adventures didn't see more cinematic glory. The event, held in the Red Room, promises to be a lively gathering of like-minded fans eager to dissect the legacy of Patrick O'Brian. Led by the erudite Angry Staff Officer and a possibly inebriated bookseller from Solid State Books, the night will unfold with discussions about the author, the books, the film, and, naturally, an excessive focus on rigging details. Attendees can anticipate multiple toasts, Madeira libations, and perhaps even a few prizes in the form of raffled or trivia-won copies of the beloved series. Whether you're a seasoned sailor of the literary seas or a landlubber curious about naval adventures, this event is open to all ages, complete with a cash bar to keep spirits high. So, join the festivities on the ides of March and beware what lurks in the mist – it might just be a Frenchman!
