I'm thrilled to announce that we'll be welcoming Wally Lamb back to Book Club Girl on Air for the second time on Thursday, December 2nd when he joins us to discuss his new novel in paperback, Wishin' and Hopin'. And what a perfect book to discuss as we usher in the holiday month!
In Wally Lamb’s pitch perfect novel, it is 1964. LBJ and Lady Bird are in the White House, Meet the Beatles is on everyone’s turntable, and ten-year-old Felix Funicello (distant cousin of the iconic Annette!) is doing his best to navigate fifth grade—easier said than done when scary movies still give you nightmares and you bear a striking resemblance to a certain adorable cartoon boy. But there are several things young Felix can depend on: the birds and bees are puzzling, television is magical, and this is one Christmas he’s never going to forget.
Browse inside Wishin' and Hopin' here. I have 10 copies of the book to give away to the first 10 people who comment that they'd like to participate in the show on December 2nd at 7 pm ET. Set your reminder for the show here.
