Book Crew

Lonely? Despairing? Missing your crew? Join me for a virtual book club.

We have a good number of great writers in the Extreme Kids & Crew community. Reading their work is a great way to support them and transport yourself from the increasingly familiar walls surrounding us all. Plus if we meet over ZOOM to discuss, we get a chance to connect, which is what Extreme Kids & Crew is all about.

I have put together a preliminary list that can easily be expanded. I would love this to last beyond Covid 19. There will be a beyond, people. I promise.

First up is particularly apt. A Kirkus Review and NPR Best Book of the Year, The Blondes is a dark, comic, superbly entertaining account of a rabies like pandemic that affects only blonde women who must do whatever they can to hide their hair. By Emily Schultz.  First meeting: Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.  

Next Up:

The Octopus Museum by Brenda Shaughnessy

Deaf Republic by 2020's Felix Honoree Ilya Kaminsky

Kids Like Us by Hilary Reyl

Trembling Answers by Craig Teicher

St. Ivo by Joanna Hershon
