July Meeting

We met on July 22nd not to discuss a book, but instead to make up our book reading list for the upcoming year. Two recommendations were taken from each member, the titles were written on slips of paper and a drawing was held for the final selections. Some of the twelve titles were arranged to coordinate the subject themes with the months of the year. So, at this time our new reading list will be:
September: The Infidel, by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
October: The Gun Seller, by Hugh Laurie
November: The Feast of Love, by Charles Baxter
December: Red Bird Christmas, by Fannie Flagg

January: The Broken Cord, by Michael Dorris
February: The Friday Night Knitting Club, by Kate Jacobs
March: March, by Geraldine Brooks

April: The Florist's Daughter, by Patricia Hampl
May: The Other Bolyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory
June: Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides

July: Year of Magical Thinking, by Joan Didion
August: Story of Edgar Sawtelle, by David Woblewski
September: Stalking Susan, by Julie Kramer

Books chosen for the first September and for May reading will be available in library book club kits. And some alternates are possible for times when our chosen books may not be available.
