We know that New Year’s Day arrives on January 1, but we’ve always felt that back-to-school time is when a new year really begins. That’s why we decided to start our Book Discussion Series in the fall.
Many readers have told us that they don’t want to join a book club but would love to participate in book discussions. Some book club members have mentioned that they’d love to supplement their get-togethers with professionally led discussions. In response, we’ve created a Book Discussion Series, starting this October.
We’ll meet on Tuesday mornings, 10:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., alternating between the cozy living rooms of our Lake Bluff homes. We do all the work — you just show up and enjoy an enlightening conversation. (Well, you do need to read the books!) Here’s the schedule and book selections:
October 2 Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday
November 6 Educated by Tara Westover
January 8 The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai
February 5 Dopesick by Beth Macy
March 5 Less by Andrew Sean Greer
April 2 A Deadly Wandering by Matt Richtel
The cost will be $125 for the six sessions. Please contact us to register, or with any questions. We can’t wait to discuss these terrific books! And if you don’t live in the Chicago area, we hope you’ll enjoy the recaps of each meeting we’ll post on the Between the Covers website.
