Book clubbers, rejoice: we’re dropping the new reading list for our Bent Corners and Coffee Break book clubs. Here’s what we’re going to be reading/discussing/critiquing/relating to/praising/mocking for the next nine months (links are to the book’s Goodreads page):
October – The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George
November – News of the World by Paulette Jiles
December – The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
January – How Emotions Are Made by Lisa Feldman Barrett
February – The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See
March – Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin
April– Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner
May – Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
June – A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
If you haven’t been to book club before, now is the perfect time to join in (just as it would be any other time I were to write this sentence). We don’t do as much jacket wearing and tea sandwich eating as country club members, or as much singing and dancing as Mickey Mouse Club members, but our club more than makes up for it with stimulating (and sometimes silly) conversation and light snackables. New members are always welcome, and you don’t even have to endure a series of increasingly grueling trials, swear a blood oath, or slip the bouncer a twenty to get in; simply show up, and we’ll accept you wholeheartedly. We meet the first Wednesday of each month at 11 AM, and the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM. We discuss the same book at both meetings, so attend whichever one works better with your schedule.
