Just a friendly reminder that this is the last week of November's Book Clubs.
I hope you all have had a great time talking to Michael White, Ann Packer, Maggie O'Farrell, and Anita Diamant. They'll be saying their goodbyes this week and I hope you take time to thank them as well -- and if you have any final questions or comments, you’ve still got time, but post them now.
December discussions start officially on Monday, November 26. A few weeks ago, I announced a new board: Center Stage. We're all excited about these weeklong author appearances by Mary Kay Andrews (Nov. 26-30), Anne Perry (Dec. 3-7), and Christopher Moore (Dec. 10-14).
As usual, we have some great moderator-led conversations coming up as well: Sara Gruen's bestselling Water for Elephants; Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol; and Nobel Prize Winner Doris Lessing's The Cleft.
And don't forget that we're dividing Kid Lit into two conversations. The Family Room is your place to talk about your favorite children's books, books for your kids, and all those parenting guides. Teen Reads is where readers 13 and up can talk about the latest books for young adults.
Meanwhile, enjoy this last week of November's book clubs, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
