Our book club isn't actually named anything, but I think most everyone lives in Ravenswood or really close by. As I've said, I live in Sheridan Park, that tree lined suburb of Ravenswood on the east side of Clark, so close enough. This is a low impact book club; we meet every 6 to 8 weeks and we're decidely laid back. We're also on the small side with 6 or 7 people per meeting, and we'd like to expand by a person or two. If you have any interest, leave a message here. I'm not expecting any replies, but I might be surprised. The next "Kelly Clarkson Ass" googler might just be a friend in waiting.
Next up is Stacy's selection, The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. Previous picks were The Fall by Albert Camus, Great Plains by Ian Frazier, The Quiet American by Graham Greene and Everyday People by Stewart O'Nan.
Wow, I should join this book club--sounds like it's kind of close to where I live. I read The Red Tent and thought it was fantastic. Beautiful, in fact. I can't wait to see what you guys think...
You would be very welcome to join us, Lacey. I'll email you with date and location as soon as it is confirmed. Date will most likely be in late August or early September.
Cool, let me know! :) I'd love to sit in...
"A work of raw genius ... Book clubs done with 'The Lovely Bones' – or shying away from its grisly subject matter – would do well to consider this exuberant novel about the tenacity and mystery of faith."
- The Christian Science Monitor (Named one of the Best 5 Novels of 2002)
