CCR Book Club

Dear CCR Book Enthusiasts,

Our Book Club is a great way to find out about new books and to read and discuss them among friends. We select eight books for the season from a list suggested by group members. We read one a month and then meet for a potluck dinner to discuss the book. the discussions are informal, there are no presentations. The group also trades copies of books they don't necessarily want to receive back. Everyone is welcome!

A big welcome to the new and old members, we had our first meeting November 18 where we discussed we Monica Ali's "In The Kitchen".

Our December book is "March" by Australian author Geraldine Brooks, published 2005. We will be meeting on Monday, December 21, 2009. Details to follow shortly.

Other books we have chosen for this season are "Dreams of My Russian Summers" by Russian author Andrei Makine published in translation 1995, for our January meeting. Two books to follow will be "The History of the Siege of Lisbon" by Portuguese author Jose Saramago, published in translation 1996 and "The Book of Negroes" by Canadian author Lawrence Hill, 2007. Please get your copies ordered to allow you enough time to read them.
