June Meeting

Hi Everyone. I missed the June meeting, and the discussion of Suite Francaise, by Irene Nemirovsky, so I have little to report about it.

Maybe someone who had been to the meeting could leave a comment of how it went?

Otherwise, we are starting into the July book-of-the-month selection, which will be: Still Alice, by Lisa Genova. This had been previously scheduled to be the book for June, so if you read it in advance, you will be that much more ahead!

For July we will be having to make some alternate accommodations for meeting, since our usual room will be unavailable. Stay tuned for more info as things become settled.

May Meeting Follow-up

Our book for the month of May was Year of Wonders, by Geraldine Brooks. Nine members were present for a great discussion of the novel, best described as an historical fiction about the bubonic plague.

Having not attended the meeting, I am not able to provide many details about the discussion. If you are interested in knowing more about the book, I would refer you to the author's website: While you are there, be sure to read more about the author, who began a career in journalism before rethinking her future goals after being jailed for doing her job.

A previous book on our club's reading list was the novel, March, which was written by the same author, and many in the group found to be entertaining.
