The Bookstore

Feb 21, 2024

This week we read and discussed My Garden (Book): by Jamaica Kincaid. It's memoir, it's essays, it's history, it's botany, it's maybe not what you'd normally choose to read if you're a fan of our typical fare, but it has a lot of great ideas to think and talk about. You should still read Jamaica Kincaid even if this one isn't for you. Becca recommends the novel Lucy or another work of nonfiction about her home, Antigua, called A Small Place.

March's prompt for the Bookstore Challenge 2024 is to read a book with a name in the title. Becca's pick, Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya, will be first. Followed by Corinne's choice: I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem by Maryse Conde.

And then Becca is way ahead of us and has already chosen her read for April's prompt (Envirionmental Fiction) Latitudes of Longing by Shubhangi Swarup.
