Book Club Summer Hiatus until September 2015

The Pioneer Bookshop Book Club members take the summer off.  The next meeting will be Thursday, September 3 at 7pm. All are welcome to join us at the Pioneer Bookshop, 823 4th Ave. in downtown Grinnell, Iowa.

The selection for the September discussion is The Gold Finch by Donna Tartt.   The website for Goodreads says "The Goldfinch is a novel of shocking narrative energy and power. It combines unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language, and breathtaking suspense, while plumbing with a philosopher's calm the deepest mysteries of love, identity, and art. It is a beautiful, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the ruthless machinations of fate.:"

It is a 771 page book.  Perfect to savor over the summer months.
