Julie P.

I love this post. My book club has an author chat every other month (if not more than that.) Next week, we are having our first live author visit (Joshua Henkin author of MATRIMONY.) This is very special to us because we live in Central PA -- not exactly a hot-spot for authors.

Julie E.

My book group had a chat via speakerphone with Chris Bohjalian when we read "The Double Bind." It was great! The author was a lot of fun to talk to. I would definitely take part in something like that again.
Congrats on your author visit, Julie P.--I used to live in northeast PA, and that wasn't exactly an author hotspot either. :)
Also, I just bought Rigler's book and can't wait to read it.

Laurie Viera Rigler

Very exciting to hear from two book clubbers who are already engaged in inviting authors. I'll bet your experiences will inspire others to try it.

Enjoy the book, Julie!


Thanks Laurie for this wonderful post. My book club was able to speak with Kate Jacobs, author of The Friday Night Knitting Club and Comfort Food. She was really gracious and not only answered our questions regarding her book, but also told us about her personal favorite authors and books!
Oh, and I just picked up your book in paperback and can't wait to jump in!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
