Book Group Selections for 2007.
All meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month, except in February (due to Mardi Gras) and November (due to Thanksgiving).
2008 Book recommendation lists will be made in the November meeting.
The first three books for 2007 have been selected. I still need to consult DeVille’s Bookstore to determine when some books will be available in paperback and how easy it will be to obtain books that were published 10 years ago. Once this determination has been made, the dates with the book will be announced.
As always, a 10% discount for book club members will be available at DeVille’s.
We will meet at PJ’s on Maple Street. In the March meeting, we will decide whether to meet at another location for the next quarter.
The following books will be discussed in the first quarter of 2007:
January 17 – The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson
February 28 – The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai (this work was the 2006 Booker Prize winner)
March 21 The Black City by George Sand
These other books have also been selected. The dates of discussion will be announced later.
