Books for Texans met last night at the Georgetown Public Library. The book club meets every third Tuesday of the month (7pm in the Hewlett Room). We discussed Liar's Club by Mary Karr. Mickie and I really liked the book. I thought it was very well written. Of course, the story isn't something that I would classify as happy or even uplifting, but good nonetheless. The book club members were just about split on who liked it and who didn't.
We'd love it if you could join us for book club. We did something a little different this year-- we picked books for the first six months.
Here's what we're going to be reading over the next few months.
March: Spanish Texas, 1591-1821 by Donald E. Chipman and Harriet Denise Joseph
April: Off the Beaten Trail by William Edward Syers
May: The Kings of Texas: The 150-Year Saga of an American Ranching Empire by Don Graham
June: Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream by Doris Kearns Goodwin
We hope to see you soon!
