September Discussion: In the Distance by Hernan Diaz
The September read will be In the Distance by Hernan Diaz. Oscar will be September's moderator! “An affecting oddness is the great virtue of In the Distance, along with its wrenching evocations of its main character’s loneliness and grief. And its ability to create lustrous mindscapes from wide-open spaces, from voids that are never empty.” —New York Times ----What it's About----- Finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction "A young Swedish immigrant finds himself penniless and alone in California. The boy travels East in search of his brother, moving on foot against the great current of emigrants pushing West. Driven back again and again, he meets naturalists, criminals, religious fanatics, swindlers, Indians, and lawmen, and his exploits turn him into a legend. Diaz defies the conventions of historical fiction and genre, offering a probing look at the stereotypes that populate our past and a portrait of radical foreignness." -----Where to Get it----- Available in multiple formats on Amazon:

    What we're about

    Let's read books, drink coffee, and snack on baked goods! Something Witty Book Club is a book club for young professionals (and beyond) that meets monthly on Sundays at coffee shops and brunch places around Dallas.

    We read a diverse set of books voted on by the group. We vote on next month's book at the end of every meeting, and the person who pitches the winning book serves as Book Club Moderator for that month. We also try to do other fun things like see movies based on books we've read, books swaps, and an annual Halloween party!

    Join us and discuss some great books (and a fun dud every once in a while). We also maintain a Facebook group where we post suggestions for upcoming meetings and general book nerd-related posts!
