So here’s my idea. A few of us (Max: 8?) at a patio bar so there’s room to spread out. A laptop with zoom to let more people join in. Thoughts? If there’s enough interest, can also do 2 weekends of smaller groups. Feel free to leave your thoughts below or message me.
If you would like to RSVP to in person event or interested in meeting in person for this, please message me on here or email me with SUCH A FUN AGE as subject ([masked]). I know this seems weird but I’m trying to navigate a return to smaller in person events during covid age. Humor me! Regardless, there will be a zoom for this July 18th at noon.
Let’s read and discuss Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid.
“Kiley Reid has written the most provocative page-turner of the year....[ Such a Fun Age] nestl[es] a nuanced take on racial biases and class divides into a page-turning saga of betrayals, twists, and perfectly awkward relationships....The novel feels bound for book-club glory, due to its sheer readability. The dialogue crackles with naturalistic flair. The plotting is breezy and surprising. Plus, while Reid’s feel for both the funny and the political is undeniable, she imbues her flawed heroes with real heart.” —Entertainment Weekly
For all of you who came to the book discussion with author Natalia Sylvester for “Everyone Knows You Go Home”, her YA debut is finallyyyyyy here!! (July 14)
Please preorder if you can— it helps the author when there are preorders.
"Sylvester's YA debut embodies the theme of our decade: to stand up and speak up for what we believe in.... Sylvester expertly puts readers inside the pressured lives of a family in politics and reaffirms the adage that indeed, knowledge is power." —Booklist, STARRED review
"Sylvester adeptly delves behind the scenes in political families' lives while presenting the complexity of a young woman realizing that her parents are not the heroes she always believed them to be....A timely call to stand up for your beliefs."— Kirkus
