Hi Joanna!
 
I'm Ina...a new member.  I look forward to meeting you at my first meeting tomorrow.  I don't read a lot of mysteries,so don't have any suggestions to offer you there.  These three were among my favorite fiction books this past year,that I think would generate a good discussion:  All are available in paperback.
 
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld (a NY Times Notable book)
Loosely based on events in Laura Bush's life.  Quiet librarian marries the black sheep of a political family and inadvertently ends up in the White House.  Thought provoking questions about marriage, loyalty, and responsibility. 
 
Testimony by Anita Shreve 
Aftermath of a sex scandal at an elite New England boarding school and the lives affected. 
 
Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahirii 
Short,stories about the experience of Bengali immigrant parents and their U.S. born children.  Beautifully captured stories of cultural and generational gulfs and identity struggles that we all can relate to.

It's about that time again to pick books for the next 6 months or so. I would love to hear what everyone wants to read. Please email me your suggestions so we can talk about them on Monday Night.

I would love to have a good mystery. Any suggestions?

Joanna
