Book Club Reads: Jan-June 2017

The first half of 2017 is already over. It feels like yesterday that we were all sitting around the dining table picking what books we wanted to read this year, and now they’re half gone!

The first six!

January – things that can and cannot be said by Arundhati Roy and John Cusack

Read it if:   You want a short, super-focused conversational book between the incredible Arundhati Roy and the surprisingly erudite John Cusack.

February – this is how you lose her by junot díaz

Read it if: You want to read something literary that will also make you page-turn and soul-ache.

March – islamaphobia by deepa kumar

Read it if: You live in America and want to learn something.

April – hitchhikers guide to the galaxy by Douglas Adams

Read it if: You haven’t yet, and want to join the conversation. (It’s a part of our cultural conversation!)

May – playing dead by Elizabeth greenwood

Read it if: You’re interested in privacy, identity, and simply disappearing.

June – the vegetarian by Han kang

Read it if: You like feeling deeply unsettled.

The next six!

July – American nations by Colin Woodward

August – hav by Jan Morris

September – the last city of the monkey god by Douglas Preston

October – the fireman by joe hill

November – Astoria by Peter stark
