The Second Book: The Bean Trees

Hello Bookworms! We hope everyone is enjoying (or enjoyed) the first book, The Northern Clemency. Don't worry if you're not done yet, you still have eight days, but we wanted to give a little more advanced notice on the second book so we would all have more time to find a copy. (Added benefit: It's paperback!) We won't be starting the second book until after we've had some time to discuss the first one, so no rush. For anyone who found us mid-book and has been waiting to join, now is a great time!

Without further ado, our second book will be: The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. This was Kingsolver's debut book back in the late 80s, long before she wrote her bestseller, The Poisonwood Bible. The Bean Trees follows the adventures of a young girl from Kentucky as she travels west and confronts life experiences that are both ordinary and extraordinary.

So, start keeping an eye out for the book. If you need some help, check out our tools in the sidebar. Stay tuned for more info. in the coming weeks! If you have any questions, send us an e-mail.
