*Meeting Location - El Patron Restaurant*

Charge: Free except food, beverage and occasionally the book

Book for May: "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein

Location: El Patron Restaurant

The novel follows the story of Denny Swift, a race car driver and customer representative in a high-end Seattle auto dealership, and his dog Enzo, who believes in the Mongolian legend that a dog who is preparedwill be reincarnated in his next life as a human.Enzo sets out to prepare, with The Seattle Times calling his journey "a struggle to hone his humanness, to make sense of the good, the bad, and the unthinkable."

Enzo spends most of his days watching and learning from television, gleaning what he can about his owner's greatest passion, race car driving — and relating it to life. Enzo eventually plays a key role in Denny's child-custody battle with his in-laws, and distills his observations of the human condition in the mantra "that which you manifest is before you." Enzo helps Denny throughout his life, through his ups and downs.
