Thank you for the reminder!! I hate being Central time, it is hard to remember the time since it is six when we are usually out of the house. I am hoping to make it on time this time!!

Melissa C

I have to work tonight after all, so I will have to listen later! This book was really good! I have a few questions though to participate:

*If you had to narrow it down to one message that you hoped people garnered from your novel, what would you say that would be?
*Was it cathartic to write about Katrina after having gone through it yourself?
*Since this subject hits so close to home for some people and is emotionally charged even now, what do you say to people who may disagree with your telling of events or the pictures you have painted about New Orleans and its people?
*Will you be writing more about New Orleans in the future?

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.
