Subject: [flyleafbooklovers] October Fiction Selection

To those of you planning on attending Monday evening's 7pm discussion of Cold by Bill Streever, I look forward to seeing you and to our conversation!

I want to go ahead and get the ball rolling on our October meetup, scheduled for Tuesday the 19th. Since we are alternating monthly between fiction and non-fiction, this vote will be for a literary title. I am offering some suggestions here (all available on paperback!) and invite your contributions of more options or to go ahead and express interest in a couple so I can narrow it down to 3 for a group-wide official vote.

Here we go...

By Chris Cleave

"Little Bee will blow you away....In restrained, diamond-hard prose, Cleave alternates between these two characters' points of view as he pulls the threads of their dark ��� but often funny ��� story tight. What unfolds between them... is both surprising and inevitable, thoroughly satisfying if also heart-rending." Washington Post
