Holly Recommends…

Welcome to my book club!

I’m not quite sure why I’m doing this when I’m already in a book club I can barely keep up with, but I’m starting an online book club! Everyone is welcome to join!

Here are the books we’ll be reading this year. (Since there’s not much time left in January, we’ll talk about the first book in February.)

The first selection will be Dear Life by Alice Munro!

The first selection will be Dear Life by Alice Munro!

February 5 and 19: Dear Life by Alice Munro
March 5 and 19: Of Love and Other Demons by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
April 2 and 16: Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld
May 7 and 21: Sea Creatures by Susanna Daniel
June 4 and 18: Surviving Valencia by Holly Tierney-Bedord (that’s me!)
July 2 and 16: Thrive by Arianna Huffington
August 6 and 20: The Stranger by Albert Camus
September 3 and 17: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
October 1 and 15: The First Bad Man by Miranda July
November on: To be determined.

Each book will be broken into two parts, and those parts will be discussed on the first and third Thursdays of the month, from 6 pm central time to 8 pm central time, via comments to this blog. For Dear Life (which is a book of stories, not a novel), here is a schedule for our first meeting:

Thursday, Feb. 5. Discussions open on the stories To Reach Japan, Amundsen, Leaving Maverly, Gravel, Haven, Pride, and Corrie. The remainder of the book will be discussed two weeks later.

I will supply some questions to get us started.

If you’d like to join, subscribe to Holly Recommends (this blog). I will sending reminders as we get closer to February 5! Looking forward to meeting you all then!
