How Exciting!

My book club choose our next book: The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. I'm thrilled! I've been wanting to read this for a while now.

And get this! The author, Junot Diaz, is speaking in Baltimore at the CityLit Festival on April 18th ... and my club is going together! We're going to attend the author talk from 3-4pm then walk down to a local coffee stop to discuss the book.

Now doesn't that sound like fun?!




If any of you are in the area, you should join us for the author talk. You can read more about CityLit - and see which other authors are appearing there - at this link.

That sounds perfect (and so much fun.) Can't wait to "hear" about it!

Wow! Good for you... wish I could be there but I think the flight tix alone would cost me a bomb. :(

OOoh, lucky! You'll have to tell us all about it.

It's a good Book Club book because there is a lot to talk about. Our book club just did it. If you're interested in reviews of the book, there are a couple of posts at Books on the Brain and on my site.

Enjoy!

Stop by and say hi while you're at Citylit.

Erika - We definitely will! I already told the gals that you'd be there signing copies of your book - they're all excited to meet you. :)

That sounds like a terrific outing! My previous book club met at a bookstore and we would often choose books based on who would be in the store for readings or book signings. It really gives you a whole different look at a book.

This is on my wish list, not yet on my shelf ... Your book group has a wonderful plan, I bet you'll all be very pumped from seeing the author and you'll have one of the best discussions ever!

Looking forward to hearing about the afternoon.
