Hello, I am Veronica Drake, a transplant from Chicago, and an avid, lifelong reader and learner.
My favorite genre is good historical novels; and second favorite is intelligent thrillers. My least favorite genre is the business self-help books (a bore) or books made from films (pointless).
My favorite book is "Manchild in the Promise Land" and my least favorite book is "The Canterbury Tales."
'MOCKINGBIRD: A PORTRAIT OF HARPER LEE,' BY CHARLES J. SHIELDS -- I would highly recommend this very thorough look at the author Nell Harper Lee throughout her life, including her time as a researcher and friend of Truman Capote while he wrote "In Cold Blood" and the storm around her seminal book, "To Kill a Mockingbird."
I really like the character of Scout in "To Kill a Mockingbird." I was an inquisitive tom-boy and learned about the evils of racism up close.
"Cloud Atlas" is the book that I want to read, after seeing the movie.
The Club was very laid back and I was made to feel very welcome. The club is more social than book review.
Hi Veronica, I just wanted to let you know I will not be attending the "It's Snowing" event tomorrow. You and I were the only two going. Another time. Jean Walburn
