T-Dot Bookclub July Meetup

                                                                RSVP's OPEN ON JUNE 10th!

Hey hey Readers!  

We made a collective decision at the June book club to save our Dickens month for sometime later in the year. Somehow Charles Dickens seems more appropriate for the colder weather... yes? 

So instead, we will honour the life of Dr. Maya Angelou, with her classic:

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

Additionally, if you're familiar with any of her other work and you'd like to share, please feel free.

Happy Reading!


If the RSVP list is full don't hesitate to jump on the waiting list.  You'll be surprised how fast the list turns over as the big day approaches (especially the last 24hrs!).  So if you DO wind up on the waiting list you'd better keep your calender clear.


Just a brief note on our methods and madness:

The point of choosing more then one book is to engage as many different tastes as possible.  The added bonus is that it gives us a platform for discussion - which is why the books we choose are always thematically similar.

We don't expect you to always have the time to read both monthly book selections.  You can rest assured that our conversations are so deliciously booky in general, that you really only need to be a lover of the written word to find something to get down and dirty with.

That said, its entirely up to you how much you're going to be bothered by spoilers, or discussion about books you haven't read, because we don't hold back!  [aka: SPOILER ALERT]

So if you want to come out - even if you haven't read the books - by all means c'mon out!   Even folks who haven't read any of the books on offer that month at all have left having had a great time!

* All of our books are chosen as a collective at each meeting. We're like the Borg that way.

    Book pairing suggestion:

    The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield
    Her Fearful Symmetry, by Audrey Niffenegger

    Theme = twins and ghosts

    I love both these books and I think they'd make a great pairing. I'm posting it here in case I forget to mention them at the July meeting.
