The Great American Read Book Club

Thursday, January 31, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Members only–free. To register, please call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Inspired by The Great American Read, an eight-part PBS series with viewer participation to select America’s favorite novel, Village member Bill Gordon invites members to join this new monthly book club, selecting each month’s readings from The Great American Read list of America’s 100 favorite books. The reading for January will be The Call of the Wild by Jack London; for February, Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston; and for March, A Prayer For Owen Meany by John Irving. After the first few months, a member of the group will be asked to select the book to read the following month. Space is limited, so sign up early!
