Book Club Meeting Tonight

The book club mailing list is currently down, so I cannot send out my usual reminders to everyone, but, yes, the GB book club is meeting this evening (Monday, March 12) at The Book Cellar at 7:30pm to talk about The Hummingbird's Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea. Did you finish it? Heh, heh. I finished it just in the nick of time, although I thought for sure I would be frantically skimming the last 50 pages on the CTA just before the meeting.

You can also find the publisher's reading group discussion questions online here, or in the back of the book if you have the paperback edition. These publisher reading group guides are always a bit odd, but the questions may get you thinking about some of the themes in the book.
