The Morning Book group met Thursday at Joyce’s. We had an interesting discussion of Toni Morrison’s “A Mercy”. Next month Helen will be reviewing “Anna Karenina” at Pat S’s home. Can’t wait for that!
Helen should be at the Hamlet simulcast (starring Benedict Cumberbatch) at the Regal Theater tonight. Sorry to have missed it. Helen, if you have a few free moments can you do a little review?
Pat R’s son Marty will be reviewing Orhan Pamuk’s upcoming book for the NY Times soon.
Colm Toibin’s book “Brooklyn” was made into a movie and will be coming out next month. Two popular Irish actors will be the leads. I recognized them from previous films. Helen did a wonderful review of the book two years ago.
Station 11 by Emily St. John Mandel is our next book for the Tuesday afternoon group on Nov. 3. It will be reviewed by Marcia at Carol N’s home. It was a book I never would have chosen on my own, but I’m glad I read it and will discuss with friends.
Take care, Bookhound
