Suggestions for 2009 Selections

Karen Abbott's Sin in the Second City will be our final selection for 2008. Alice and I will soon meet to decide what we'll read in 2009, but first we want to know what you want to read. Links to lists of all of the books we've read in the past can be found on the bar to the right - take a look at these first and then email us at bookclub[at]gapersblock[dot]com with your suggestions. The only requirement is that the book's subject must be Chicago-related or the author must have some ties to the city or the suburbs. Fiction, non-fiction, and comic suggestions are all welcome.

We look forward to another year of discovering great Chicago literature with all of you.
