CCR Book Club - January 2010

Book Club is a great way to find out about new books and to read and discuss them among friends. This is how the Book Club works, our members have suggested titles they are interested in reading and the group has made 4 of the 8 selections from these titles. We read one a month and then meet for a potluck dinner to discuss the book. Our 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!

We are meeting on Wedesday, January 27 at CCR member Linda Champoux's home for our potluck dinner and discussion of the January book pick: "Dreams of My Russian Summers" by Russian author Andrei Makine. The author wrote the novel in French and it was published in 1995 under the original title " Le Testament Français". It was then translated into English in 1997 by Geoffrey Strachan.

Meeting: January 27, 2010

Place: Linda's house

Time: 7:30 pm

Two books to follow will be "The History of the Siege of Lisbon" by Portuguese author Jose Saramago, (right) published in 1989 (in translation in 1996) and "The Book of Negroes" by Canadian author Lawrence Hill, 2007. We have still to decide on 4 more titles. Remember to order your copies in time to read them!
