Introduction

I read a bunch of dusty old tomes as an undergrad, but now I'd like to read something a little more fun!

Why did you decide to join this book club?

I majored in English in college and I'd like to put all that training to some good use! I'm also relatively new to the area, so I thought this might be a good way to get out and meet some new and interesting people.

Do you have any banned book suggestions?

Faulker's "As I Lay Dying", Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", "The Handmaid’s Tale" by Margaret Atwood, and "Slaughterhouse-Five" by Kurt Vonnegut.

What types of books do you usually read? (Favorite books, genres, etc.)

I studied medieval literature, so lots of that, but lately for fun I've been trying to read some more contemporary works, which I would broadly say has meant anything written since the Civil War. I'm currently reading Mark Twain's Autobiography.

    Welcome to the group! Are those fabrics behind you in your profile picture? I'd love to know what you're making. I dabble in a little bit of amateur knitting myself.
