Another Marvelous Book Club Discussion About THE ART OF FLOATING

Earlier this week, I had a terrific discussion about THE ART OF FLOATING with another marvelous book club! The host, Maria, put together a delicious spread (beach themed, of course)! And offered a perfect wine for the occasion (Plum Island wine, to honor the setting of THE ART OF FLOATING).

Since most of the book clubs I’ve met with have been made up of women, it was fun and informative to have a couple of men in this conversation. All in the book club were smart, thoughtful readers with great senses of humor. Thanks for hosting me!

Stack of Old BooksOn Friday night, I’ll be meeting with another book club to discuss THE ART OF FLOATING, and this one has stolen my heart! Mind you, all book clubs rock, but this one has gone over the top in marvelous ways. It is:

  1. hosting a beach-themed dinner to accompany the discussion [THE ART OF FLOATING takes place in the Newburyport (beach town) and on Plum Island (beach).]
  2. having every member make a list (as main character Odyssia Dane is a major list maker)

This is going to be so much fun. (And guess what? I’m even making my own list!)

Will update with photos after our discussion!

Cheers!
