Before our dear Alice Cartwright
heads off and leaves Oakland for her next great adventure, she'll be hosting June's book club Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward.
Ward won her second National Book Award for Fiction for this 2017 novel (after winning for 2011's Salvage the Bones), and was also awarded a 2017 MacArthur Genius Grant. Her writing has been compared to works by Toni Morrison, William Faulkner, and George Saunders.
At 285 pages, it should be easily readable by June 25th, and I will let you all know when books are confirmed to be in at the bookstore so you can pick one up. I'll have July's event posted soon as well!
As always, please invite friends you think would enjoy the book club! We'd love some fresh blood as we'll be saying goodbye to a few longtime members soon. :( :( :(
If you can bring a snack or beverage (non-alcoholic is always great too!) to share, please do! We'll have off-topic discussion afterwards. See you all soon!
