July - Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
We had great fun discussing the actual rules of civility as well. We will probably bring up cleaning your teeth with the table clothe at every meeting from now on!
Our book for August is Maria Semple's wildly popular Where'd You Go, Bernadette? which made a lot of "best of" lists in 2012 and will be a much different read from anything we've read recently.
In September, we'll have our second annual multi-generational read. Last year's choice, Laura Hildenbrand's Unbroken was a huge success and we had a wonderful discussion. I've chosen Lily Koppel's The Astronaut Wives Club for this year's book, sticking with a non-fiction choice We read Koppel's The Red Leather Diary a few years ago and enjoyed it and this one is getting excellent reviews.
