Monthly Author Reads

This is a group where we highlight one author a month with each month's author decided by group members' suggestions. During that month, you can read one or more books by the author or just jump in to discuss books you have already read by that person!

Current author: Adriana Trigiani

Upcoming Authors:
Aug: Charles Dickens
Sept: Wallace Stegner

Oct/Nov/Dec 2020 authors: Nominations and votes for our next round of authors can be made here.

Past authors we've discussed can be found here.

Please check out the Author Theme Reads group for in-depth, long-term discussions on specific authors. (Note that group is currently 'dormant' and in need of an administrator.)
