2018 Book club titles announced

The downtown EPL book club has unveiled their title selections for 2018.

book-clubThe 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 19: “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

May 21: “The bluest eye” by Toni Morrison

June 18: “Raintree county” by Ross Lockridge, Jr.

July 16: “Woman warrior” by Maxine Hong Kingston

August 20: To be determined

September 17: “Monuments men” by Robert M Edsel

October 15: “The legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving

November 19: “Black Elk speaks: being the life story of a holy man of Oglala Sioux” by John G. Neihardt

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.”
