OCTOBER IS NATIONAL READING GROUP MONTH
Celebrate the joy of shared reading!
In celebration of National Reading Group Month our Trusted Source for October is Ann Kent, founder of Book Group Expo--bringing readers and writers together in intimate and conversational literary salons. The next big Expo event will take place in 2010 (please see bookgroupexpo.com for more information). In the meantime, definitly peruse Ann's expert recommendations for great book club selections below.
Whether or not you are already a fan of master storyteller Carlos Ruiz Zafón (The Shadow of the Wind), I think you will enjoy this stellar page-turner about the perilous nature of obsession, in literature and in love. Set in an abandoned mansion in the heart of Barcelona, a labyrinth of secrets, the magic of books, passion, and friendship, all blend into a masterful story. This is the perfect book group pick because there are so many topics for discussion--and, most likely, a little heated discussion at that! I'm so pleased that my own book group recently chose The Angel's Game. If they hadn't, I might have missed out on a delicious and complicated treat.
