Hope everyone had a good holiday season. The book group info is listed below. I just finished the books by Karin Slaughter. They are not for the faint of heart. Lot’s of graphic detail and she deals mostly with crimes against children and women.
Laurie King’s newest book, “Touchstone”, is out and getting really good reviews. This will be my next read, after the book group books of course.
OutLoud Women’s Book Group:
The OutLoud Women’s Book Group will meet January 22 at 7:00 pm to discuss “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See.
At the November meeting Cindy stepped down as group leader and recommended me to replace her. Cindy has done a great job leading this group over the past year and I can only hope to do as well. She and Jenny will still attend meetings as much as their hectic schedules will allow.
Hope to see you at the January meeting!
Lambda Book Group:
Just a quick reminder about the January meeting of the Lambda Book Group. We will be discussing David Leavitt’s contemporary classic The Lost Language of Cranes on Wednesday, January 16 at 7PM. As always, we’ll be meeting in the community meeting room adjacent to bronte bistro at Davis-Kidd Booksellers in the Mall at Green Hills (and a partridge in a pear tree).
David Leavitt is one of the foremost literary writers in contemporary gay literature. In his debut novel The Lost Language of Cranes, Leavitt captures the terror and passion of new love. This multi-layered novel about Phillip Benjamin and his first serious romance is complicated by the struggle of Phillip’s father to deal with his own closeted homosexuality. As this family reexamines the “ties that bind,” readers are causes to question truths they have trusted for their entire lives.
I look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
