The downtown EPL book club has unveiled their title selections for 2018.
The club meets on the third Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m.
According to club organizer Mary Ann Dubash, the books are chosen by the group from a list she gets from Indiana Humanities.
“I give that list to the participants and everyone who comes to the meeting can pick out a title,” said Dubash.
She said titles are chosen to span genres, fiction, non-fiction and even a youth title to give something for everybody.
“I’m excited about all of them,” she said. “But as a group everyone enjoys a variety of titles that they would never have chosen on their own.”
Here are the dates and titles for the 2018 book club:
January 15: “The Tenderness of wolves” by Stef Penney
February 26: “The things they carried” by Tim O’Brien
March 19: “A widow for one year” by John Irving
April 16: “Year of wonders” by Geraldine Brooks
August 20: Any book by Amy Tan
September 17: “Monuments men” by Robert M Edsel
December 17: “Vermeer’s daughter” by Barbara Shoup
According to Dubash, even when attendees don’t enjoy the chosen book, they always appreciate the experience.
“Most of the time they will say that they are glad they read it because it’s an experience,” she said.
New attendees are always welcome, Dubash said and that finishing the book isn’t a requirement.
“We’re very accepting and like new people coming and giving their viewpoint and their input,” she said.
“I really hope that if there’s even one book that they’re interested in and even if they just want to come and listen and observe the first time we’re all right with that.”
