I have yet to receive the Bowles book from my library system. The latest information is that I should get it by September 30, at which time I'll be away and the VBC will have begun the October selection.
Obtaining several of the selections for the VBC has been a persistent problem over the last months. I wonder if we might consider coming up with a short list of reading possibilities through December so that I and others can have a bit of advance time to secure the books via either the library or Amazon?
Also, I wonder if anyone has read any of the novels of Philippe Claudel?
Is anyone open to perhaps reading a play or some poetry?
As we've not yet settled on a selection for October, these are some ideas...
