For September's book, we're going for a nostalgic pick- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.  I read this when I was in school and greatly enjoyed it.  Let's see how it holds up!


For more on the book, look below (from Amazon):

The beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century, Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a poignant and moving tale filled with compassion and cruelty, laughter and heartache, crowded with life and people and incident. The story of young, sensitive, and idealistic Francie Nolan and her bittersweet formative years in the slums of Williamsburg has enchanted and inspired millions of readers for more than sixty years. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the daily experiences of the unforgettable Nolans are raw with honesty and tenderly threaded with family connectedness -- in a work of literary art that brilliantly captures a unique time and place as well as incredibly rich moments of universal experience.

    I wish I could attend at least one of the meetups (not to discuss about the selected books, but to get familiar with members of the club). I learned that all the meetups are scheduled for Wednesday evening and it will be hard for me to attend anyone of them since I am working in the evening/second shift, Monday through Friday and sometimes on weekends. Regarding my reading skill, it takes me no less than three months to finish a single book. Thus, no one would expect anything out of me. I was intending to improve this deficiency through your club and, unfortunately, I am not able to make it happen. By the way, I am with you in spirits and hopefully I will have a different work schedule in the near future. Thanks,
    Bisrat

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
