Who is your favorite author?

Depends on my mood - Magnus Mills or Ibsen if feeling reflective on human nature, classics for comfort, Terry Prachett for giggles and cheering up, some American early 20C poetry can be pretty good....

What is your favorite book?

Dont have one favorite. The 5 people you Meet in Heaven is one I recommend, but To kill a Mockingbird is an all time classic. Really liked The Timetravellers Wife until Hollywood ruined the story with a film. As a child reading The Reader in German was memorable, but again the memory of the story and characters was spoiled by Hollywood. But Ishmael by Daniel Quinn is a seminal story in opening minds to a different way of thinking. And Kafka's The Metamorphosis a classic in the challenging societal norms. There are also some great graphic novels out there - Maus is the one always quoted (for good reason), but there are a few other suprisingly good ones as well.

Any recommendations for up coming book club meetings?

Not yet, need to see what type of books the group reads!
