Wild author Cheryl Strayed coming to Seattle

News about an upcoming event from book club member Kelly K:

Hey Book Loving Friends! 
I heard from a friend of mine that Cheryl Strayed will be at the Neptune in November with a new book. I'm going to go with her but wanted to let you all know about it in case you want to go too! Wish she was talking about the book Wild, but maybe she will a little bit?!?!

Little Bee Chris Cleave Seattle Reads Book Discussion

Hello WNDC!
Kelly C. and I had the opportunity to hear Chris Cleave speak at Ballard Library on May 14th and really enjoyed meeting him and can't wait to discuss this book at the end of the month! I thought you might be interested in hearing the audio from his talk at the Central Library on May 13th. If anything you'll enjoy his accent!
See you in a few weeks!
Kelly K.

Three Empty Cups of Tea

I also wanted to share some recent news/scandal about the very first WNDC book club book Three Cups of Tea. 

A recent article came out saying the author is full of bologna! If you remember correctly I am not a fan of this book, but I would hate for the backlash to effect organizations that are making a difference. I just didn't care for the story/author. And heck even though supposedly the author of A Million Little Pieces was full of it, I still LOVED that book (although I was bored out of my mind with Three Cups of Tea), but anyway check out these articles and share what you think about it!

Read On,
Kelly K.

Seattle Reads

Hello again WNDC!

I found out some great news about our future read for June-Little Bee by Chris Cleave.

Little Bee is the Seattle Public Library Seattle Reads 2011 featured work! This means there are some events coming up that might interest you (although they are before we are reading the book, so I'm tempted to not go, it might spoil the story!). 

Here is a link to the author events, book readings, etc. mostly happening in early May. 
Little Bee Seattle Reads

I also picked up the free Little Bee discussion guide to bring to our meeting-which will be the joint book club one!

In the mean time, hope you are all enjoying The Slap!
