PageTurner’s Book Club – 2017-2017 Book Choices

The Monday and Thursday PageTurners will begin their 2017-2018 reading season this month with a discussion of Amor Towles’ novel, A Gentleman in Moscow. The book has been praised for displaying a grace, wit and charm that contrasts dramatically against its bleak setting in 1920s Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution. It should provide for thoughtful discussion when the groups meet the last week of September.
Reading selections chosen by the two groups for the coming year are as follows:
September: A Gentleman in Moscow, Amor Towles
October: The Sympathizer, Viet Thanh Nguyen
November: The Wright Brothers, David McCullough
December: Book Exchange Social
January: Captains and the Kings, Taylor Caldwell
February: A Sense of an Ending, Julian Barnes
March: Any Human Heart, William Boyd
April: News of the World, Paulette Jiles
May: The American, Henry James
June: The Boy Who Harnassed the Wind, William Kamkwamba
