Book Clubs

Pamela Redmond is the author of eighteen books including New York 
Lisa Lutz is the author of the New York Times bestselling, Edgar- and Macavity-nominated, and Alice Award-winning Spellman Series. She is also the author of Heads You Lose, written with David Hayward, and lives and works in California. Her new Spellman book Trail of the Spellmans hits stores on February 28th. Here she talks about her experience with book clubs…or lack thereof.   
As Debra Linn notes in today's post, several authors have contributed pieces to the blog talking about how meeting with book clubs has offered them insight into their own prose. This exchange of ideas, she explains, is a two-way street --- an author visit can be just as beneficial for book clubbers as it is for the scribe who wrote the book being discussed.
One of the questions that we are asked most often is, "How does a group decide what to read?" This post from Jennifer Hart, who writes the blog, talks about how her group does this and how they enlist the help of their local independent bookseller in their selection process.
