Book Club - September

Let's meetup and read A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. This will be a follow up to this month's A Paris Wife. Let's see what he has to say about their life. Here's the synopsis from Powell's:

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

Powell's has a few copies and the library has several. It shouldn't be too difficult to get a copy.

    It was nice. I wish there had maybe been some conversation starter questions to keep the dialogue going.

    I am going to try and make it, but I am going camping this weekend and can't guarantee what time I'll be back on Sunday.

    Hello Ladies! I moved to Portland in January and haven't really met many people. Truth be told, I'm a little shy, but I would really like to join the book club and make some great friends! I know I cannot finish a book in time to meet up on the 15th, so if I would like to join you in October will you be discussing A Moveable Feast then, or will there be a different book for October? Thanks! I look forward to joinin' in all the fun!

      Hi Kylie- There will be a different book in October. We'll probably pick it on Sunday, then I'll post it. You're also welcome to come if you're not finished with the book.

    Hey, just saw this list of "32 books that will change your life" & it's pretty good. A few we have read in this book club & a few more might be good future reads, so thought I'd share the link: http://www.buzzfeed.com/erinlarosa/books-that-will-actually-change-your-life

      Thanks, Maija! We'll have to remember these...there are a number that I've always meant to read.
