book clubs.

Interested in having your book club read Naomi Blue or The Secret History of Lake Amikota?
It turns out that this is a great choice for a book club read. It’s a relatively short book, in paperback, available at bookstores, online and in the library. In addition, the book can be read on different levels — on one hand it’s a simple coming of age story, with the issues that many women have had in their own lives of self-doubt, self-consciousness and friendship. And yet, it’s a story of life’s secrets, the intensity of our lives when we harbor these secrets, and the complexity of our relationships throughout our lives.
