What to Read in April and Next Year

From Marjorie Regan:

At the meeting April 15th we will be discussing Things Fall Apart by CHinua Achebe. It is an excellent book and can be understood on several levels. The discussion at UCCC last week was wonderful. If you can get to the discussion at Bard April 11th, I think you will enjoy it.

Don't forget to keep going with Middlemarch. I finished this lovely story last week. It is well worth the time to read it.

I made a list of the books you suggested for next year at the last meeting -- see below. We can add to it or eliminate some and then vote in May.


1.The Great Man by Kate Christianson publ. 2007 about women

2.Enemy Women by Paulette Giles- Civil War (BCB)

3.Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

4.Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards, a Down Syndrome Baby, Marriage, siblings. (BCB)

5.The Grave Diggers Daughter by Joyce Carol Oates

6.The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid

7.Memories, Dreams and Reflections by Carl G. Jung

8.Deafening by Frances Itani, about a Canadian deaf girl. Based on facts.

9.The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fford – compared to Hitchhiker in the Galaxy.$16.
