Apples and OrangesMy random selection is Apples and Oranges: My Brother and Me, Lost and Found by Marie Brenner.

A gift from Marie. I was in Nashville in October for the Southern Festival of Books attending the National Reading Group Month panel. Marie was an panelist and rode with with me to the panel. What a lovely person! We talked about women authors' place in the writer's world.

Apples and Oranges is Marie's memoir on how her brother and herself grew up the same and turn out so differently and with such opposing views on life's issues. By the end of the book, Carl and Marie come to terms with each other and actually like and respect each other. Excellent book and highly recommended!

I'm on the Advisory Board for the National Reading Group Month. Come join us nationwide next October and start the conversation!
