Book Club Reminder: We’ll Be Discussing “Gilead” This Tuesday!

1 Comment »

Hi everyone, just a reminder that the first meeting of the Quiet Online Book Club will take place this coming Tuesday, August 16, from 8 to 9 pm E.S.T., on my Facebook page (log-in instructions to come). I’m really excited about this event and hope that as many of you can join as possible. It will be a chance for us to communicate in a new way, about a shared set of characters and ideas.

We’ll be discussing Gilead, by Marilynne Robinson. It’s not too late to grab a copy and join in! Even if you can’t make the one hour meeting on the evening of the 16th, the discussion will continue through the next day.

I’ve started the book and am loving it…makes perfect weekend reading, and I’m looking forward to diving in this Saturday.

Have any of you started Gilead yet? Want to offer a thumbs up for people who haven’t bought the book yet?

    I’ve started reading Gilead. It wasn’t my first choice, but I’m glad the group chose it. I am really enjoying this book and I look forward to sharing my thoughts and hearing what others have to say. This will be a new and interesting experience for me, as I’ve never been part of a book club before this.
