Our club consists of faculty and staff at Tulsa Community College. We have 20 members. READ – read, enjoy, and discuss, has been in existence for over twenty years. I choose the books, order them, distribute them, and organize the meetings. Volunteers from the group take turns bringing background and questions on the books.
BOOKS WE’D RECOMMEND FROM RECENT SELECTIONS
Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson
Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomons
The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow
True Grit by Charles Portis
The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
BEST BOOKS FOR DISCUSSION
We dipped into the past and chose True Grit by Portis. The story is set partially in Oklahoma, so we were interested in seeing the treatment of Oklahoma before statehood. The discussion centered on Mattie’s determination and strength.
