2009 National Book Awards -- Did You Vote?

Congrats to Colum McCann for winning the 2009 National Book Award for Fiction with Let the Great World Spin!

Let the Great World Spin is the critically acclaimed author’s most ambitious novel yet: a dazzlingly rich vision of the pain, loveliness, mystery, and promise of New York City in the 1970s. A sweeping and radical social novel, Let the Great World Spin captures the spirit of America in a time of transition, extraordinary promise, and, in hindsight, heartbreaking innocence.

Reading Group Holiday Parties

Bonnie asked for suggestions for her book club holiday party. One idea is to read A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote.

Short Stories and book clubs

I love short stories -- characters coming alive in compact narratives. There are many short story collections that makes great reading group picks and create lively conversation.
