In 1990, Bistro Bookers was born. Under the guidance of the B.L.O.O.M. Group (Book Lovers Of Our Metropolis) the downtown after hours book review/discussion forum was created to encourage the discussion of current provocative nonfiction written by national and local authors interspersed with fiction from Buffalo-area authors.
So what does it take to be part of Bistro Bookers? A desire for a casual, uncomplicated, stimulating night out. You're invited . . . Open to all. No reservations are required.

Book: The News Sorority: Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Christiane Amanpour and the (ongoing, imperfect, complicated) triumph of women in the news
Author: Sheila Weller
Discussed by Maryalice Demler, news anchor, WGRZ
Book Summary: For decades, women battered the walls of the male fortress of television journalism. After fierce struggles, three women—Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, and Christiane Amanpour—broke into the newsroom’s once impenetrable “boys’ club.” These extraordinary women were not simply pathbreakers, but wildly gifted journalists whose unique talents—courage and empathy, competitive drive and strategic poise—enabled them to climb to the top of the corporate ladder and transform the way Americans received their news.
