The Finkler Question, Pulitzer, upcoming dates & books

From: Joan P.
Sent on: Wednesday, April 18, 2012 10:07 AM

Important: We need a meeting place for May 20! Please email [address removed] if you have a home that will seat 12 or so and you're willing to host us. The discussion that week is The Story of Beautiful Girl by Rachel Simon.

 

Please check http://www.meetup.com/Novel-Lovers-of-Sebastopol/events/49317242/ and update your RSVP for this Sunday’s The Finkler Question discussion. If you signed up thinking it was Wolf Hall, or if you can’t make it after all, please make sure your RSVP is accurate.

 

If you’re coming, and you don’t have Ellen’s address, please email me directly ([address removed]). Feel free to bring snacks to share and a small donation towards my MeetUp organizer costs. Also bring books you’ve finished and would like to pass along to other avid readers.

 

You’ll enjoy these videos of author Howard Jacobsen – he’s funny, and knowing the background and intention of this book and Jacobsen’s response to winning the Man Booker Prize will make our discussion even more enjoyable.

On another subject, I started a discussion about the Pulitzer no-prize for-fiction this year, and suggestions for future books at http://www.meetup.com/Novel-Lovers-of-Sebastopol/messages/boards/thread/22446602. I hope you’ll add your comments.

 

Re June dates:  I am available June 17 and 24. If you’re a regular and want to be sure you can come to our June meeting, please let me know before Sunday if one of these dates is NOT possible for you, and I’ll do my best to accommodate you. We’ll make a definite decision this Sunday on the book we’re reading for June, and maybe the next few, too. (Again, see http://www.meetup.com/Novel-Lovers-of-Sebastopol/messages/boards/thread/22446602 for some ideas.)

 

I look forward to a great discussion Sunday, as always!
