THE BOOKSTORE BULLETIN
New Book Clubs in 2020
We are ringing in the New Year with two brand new book clubs: the Story Makers Challenge book club and Potluck book club.
The Story Maker book club is a complement to our Story Makers writing class (which starts in January and is currently full). This book club is a challenge book club, which means reading within a list of categories to complete the challenge. We tailored this book club to help writers think more critically about what they read, and the discussion will revolve around participants writing journeys as well as what everyone is reading. This class includes no instruction, only thoughtful discussion, and is free to everybody.
Potluck Book Club is our first daytime book club and will run from 12 to 2 PM. Reading choices will include selections across a number of genres, and our first book is the mystery Cremains of the Day by Misty Simon. Participants are encouraged to bring food, prepared or packaged, to share with the group.

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs
This is the first book in the Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series. Readers are pulled into the world of a coyote shifter raised by werewolves. Mercy’s character is so strong that she leaps off the page and drags everyone along on her adventures. The other characters are also fabulous and the world creation is amazing.
