Title Suggestions: Fall/Winter 2012-13
Read something that really knocked your socks off? Have a great title under discussion in you own book club? Make a recommendation for a book by a living author that you would like to have included in this discussion series. Give chapter and verse in a comment below (and don’t forget to tell us what’s great/interesting/important about your selection.)
The R&W Book Club is a place for us to talk about books—with each other and, from time to time, with the authors of featured titles. We’ll read fiction, non-fiction and poetry. We encourage your suggestions for authors and books to include. There are a few limitations on what we’ll consider: books must be by living authors, have broad audience appeal, and be readily available at libraries, bookstores or via download. If you’d like to suggest authors or titles, go here. If you’d like your local book club or library included in our email early-notification group, go here.
