Bookclub on the Blog: November, December and January Selections

Posted by the EPL Bookclub

A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan.  This is the first fiction book we've read with a PowerPoint chapter!  It is a very inventive, challenging read and has a log to say about relationships in the modern world. Selected as one of the New York Times best books of 2010.

The Marriage Bureau for Rich People by Farahad Zama.  This debut novel is set around a thriving arranged-marriage bureau in contemporary India.  A very light, quick read, but fun.

Any title by Daniel Woodrell.  The author, Ozark born and bred, is true to his roots fictionalizing the characters, tragedies and comedies his has witnessed.  The reader feels as though he has truly experienced a hair-raising visit to the Ozarks.

Join us for our next meeting (7-8 PM, light snacks provided). Upcoming selections for our bookclub:
February 13  Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton
March 12  An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin
April 9  Turn of Mind by Alice Laplante
May 14  Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks
