Time: 7 PM
Hosted by Kristen Noakes-Fry, 2917 7th St North at 7 PM.
The Book Club will not meet in July or August, taking a two-month break during the summer, since many book club members will be on vacation at some time during those months. However, we can prepare for the upcoming fall books by getting a head start on our next selections during the less hectic days of summer.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt has been chosen for September’s book. It is a New York Times bestseller andhas been recommended by several avid reader friends. It is a bit of a tome at 770 pages, so I will definitely get started on it this summer.
For October we’ll be discussing Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomans.
Finally, in November it will be The Round House by Louise Erdrich, another bestseller in 2012, and a National Book Award winner.
The CHNA Book Club is open to all residents and we welcome new members. We usually meet the fourth Tuesday of the month, rotating locations in each other’s homes. The September meeting will be hosted by Maureen Camphire, 835 26th Ave North at 7 PM. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
