Some news! I’m starting an Essays Book Club at Community Bookstore. Normally we’ll meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm, but in April we’re meeting on Tuesday, April 23rd. For our first book group, we’ll discuss WHEN I WAS A CHILD I READ BOOKS by Marilynne Robinson. Please spread the word! I’d love to get a core group of people to come to the book club every month. Essays rule.
