Saturday, November 3, starting at 9:30, is our annual “Care and Feeding of Book Groups” event. This free gathering is open to anyone interested in joining, starting, or nurturing a book club.
We’ve just added a new online reference for popular book club selections called “Twenty First Century Novels.” It’s an encyclopedia of background information and analysis for better understanding new “literary” titles from the past ten years.
Examples of titles discussed include “Empire Falls,” “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” “The Kite Runner,” “Prodigal Summer,” and the Harry Potter series, among dozens of others.
If you’ve enjoyed these books and would like to learn a little more about the book’s themes, writing style, what the critics thought, and more, you’ll enjoy this database. If you’re looking for a good book to suggest for your book group, or want to prepare for a discussion, you can really impress everyone with your knowledge of the book!
Also handy for school reports, so let the students in your life know about this.
