The oldest of P&P’s store sponsored book groups, it was begun by Carla shortly after the store opened over 25 years ago, when we were still located in the small space across the street.  A handful of present members have been coming all these years. 

It’s a pretty large group, usually between 25 and 40 people.  I refer to it sometimes as a “no guilt book group.”  It’s not going to fall apart because you couldn’t make it one month.  We read a variety of authors and try to represent the diversity of countries and cultures.  Some books we’ve enjoyed discussing include:  The In-Between World of Vikram Lall by M.G. Vassanji, Sister of My Heart by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Light in August by William Faulkner. 

Some books have worked better than others, but the group never fails to manage a lively discussion.  If you enjoy reading fiction and like to be surprised by great stories and authors you haven’t encountered before, this might be your group.
