This book club has been a great way to stay engaged with books, have stimuating discussion, and meet interesting people. I've been organizing the club over five years now. It's always a great time.
Contemporary Fiction, Biography, Grahpic Novels, and some non-fiction. I try to read a few of the major book award finalists each year.
1. "The Road Less Traveled," by M. Scott Peck 2. "The Hours," by Michael Cunningham 3. "The English Patient," Michael Ondaatje 4. "Siddhartha," by Hermann Hesse 5. "The Sandman", vol 1-10, by Neil Gaiman AND "The Watchman" by Moore and Gibbons
I'd like us to pool recommendations from book critics, friends and reputable publications, then vote democratically on a selection. I'd like to see a mixture of fiction, biography, non-fiction and perhaps some other "daring" genre
Hi Gwen, my name is jessica and would love to join the group! I have never been part of a group or club before. I just move to Greensboro a year ago and now that things have settled a little I ready to get out there. I a very social person and one on my main reason for joining is to meet some great people and the other reason is to challenge myself. if i join today do i need to go buy the book? how often do you meet up? Can wait to hear from you! thanks
Great to have you with us, Gwen!
HI Gwen! Have a great time at the Obama/Biden rally! If you make it to the meeting I'd love to hear about it!
Hello, Gwen, I'm Jeff Egerton, author of THE BOXCAR BLUES. This is a gripping coming of age story about two teenage boys, struggling to survive during the Great Depression. Their tempered steel toughness and street savvy allow them to rise from homeless vagrants to become owners of a major airline. THE BOXCAR BLUES is available at selected book stores and on-line book sellers. Send an e-mail to: [masked], and I'll send you a free copy of my newsletter. www.JeffEgerton.com
Thanks Gwen. I really enjoy this bookclub. Everyone is so open and interesting. I'll be in Raleigh this summer so I may miss a couple of meetings but I'm in for Don Quixote!
I wrote a five book fantasy adventure series for middle school/high school readers. The second book has recently been released; it?s a wonderful follow up to the first book. Perhaps you could mention the series to your members and pass along the website. I would certainly appreciate it.
If I can do anything for The Greensboro Book Club please let me know.
The Crossworlds Series
