Book Club Newsletter

edited September 8 in Help and Club Talk

Hi everyone,

I'm starting a newsletter as a place to post club news and book announcements in one place to make it easier to follow and keep up with the latest. Here we can announce upcoming books, let people know when a monthly discussion starts, and generally post notices about other threads (like calls for book nominations) in which club members might like to participate. Note that this thread will be closed for comment, though, in order to keep the news feed clean. The items posted here should instead link to other threads that are open to discussion.

And now to catch us up on the current club goings on.

    August 28, 2019, Moncton, New Brunswick

    Sorry for the long delay in updating the Newsletter, but it's been a busy summer. Here's the latest news:

    • August is now coming to a close, look for the discussion of our August book (The Chill, by Ross McDonald) to begin, over or just after the weekend. This is a detective novel, chosen by @NeilNjae
    • Our September pick is Recursion, by Blake Crouch, selected by @BarnerCobblewood , a sci-fi thriller. Read this book before the end of September and jump in on the discussion.
    • We've gone back to rotating picks by club members, which is how we got started. I'll be picking the October book, followed by @Michael_S_Miller (November), @NeilNjae (December), @clash_bowley (January), @dr_mitch (February), and @RichardAbbott (March). If any other club members want to be added to the rotation, feel free to speak up.
    • Out on-going slow read of Gene Wolf's Book of the New Sun continues. We're now into the third book, The Sword of the Lictor, and speaking for myself at least, I'm so far enjoying it the most of the three.

    • Our October nomination, by yours truly, is Sarah Canary by Karen Joy Fowler, a novel set in the American NW against the backdrop of railway worker camps in the rather weird year of 1871. Read this book during the month of October, to be discussed around Halloween.
