Announcing The BPL Book Discussion 2013 January Through June Schedulee

The votes are in, the books have been purchased from the wonderful people at The Book Table in Oak Park, and the schedule has been set.

Here are the titles, dates, and times that my group will be meeting at the BPL; all links are to discussion guides where possible:


Monday Afternoon Group, meets at 2:30 p.m.
January 21st - The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht
February 25th - Bury Me Standing by Isabel Fonseca
March 18th - Fun Home by Alison Bechdel
April 15th - I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flag
May 20th - The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson
June 17th - Silver Sparrow by Tayari Jones


Remember, I always post a report on what we discussed, so no matter where you live, feel free to follow along with us.  All are welcome to comment after I post the discussion notes too.

It looks like it will be a fun six months of discussions.  Our only disappointment was that when we made the eligible titles voting list, Katherine Boo's Behind the Beautiful Forevers was scheduled for a January 2013 paperback release, but after the votes were tallied, and it made the cut we were informed that since it won the National Book Award, the publisher is holding out for more money and the paperback has been pushed back until at least October 2013.
