Traveling MarLa’s online book club is live!
In case you missed the previous mentions of this club, it was started by my real-life friend Marla who is living in South Africa right now. She’s been discovering some wonderful African writers and wanted a way to introduce more people to them, so she reached across oceans and started a conversation. Each month she gathers questions from her readers about a specific book and submits them to the author, whose replies Marla posts at the end of the month. It’s such a cool idea, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. I know many of the other featured readers personally, and they have contributed some smart, probing, and illuminating questions. There’s a lot of brainpower in that virtual room.
You can join the book club, too! Simply track down the next book, read it, and submit a question to Marla. Not only will you get to be part of a great community of writers and readers, but you might win a signed copy of one of the books!
Once you’ve checked out this month’s book club conversation, take a look at Marla’s blog, too. She’s having some incredible adventures and she’s generous enough to take us along on some of them through her words and pictures.
