Author Dean Bakopoulos at the Pioneer Bookshop Feb. 2012

The Pioneer Bookshop Book Club was pleased to host Author Dean Bakopoulos, author of the novel Please Don't Come Back from the Moon. Bakopoulos, read from his book to give us a sense of the author's voice. The Grinnell College assistant professor of English engaged the audience with descriptions of his evolution as a novelist, the process of getting published and how he brings out his characters, sometimes from personal experiences. His second novel, My American Unhappiness, has been published, and he has two more books in progress.

The March 2012 Book Club choice is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. The club will meet on Thursday, March 2 at 7pm in the Pioneer Bookshop at 823 4th Avenue in downtown Grinnell. All are welcome to join us that night and/or to contribute comments to this blog. Book Club books are discounted by 25% at the Pioneer Bookshop.
