The first book we’ll discuss is Crossing California by Adam Langer. A Chicago tale that takes place in the waning days of the 1970s, this looks to be a coming of age novel featuring several families in a Jewish neighborhood. It’s a first-time author, which I figure is appropriate, and landed on several year-end best-of lists.
Plenty of copies available at local libraries, so no excuses. We’ll get together and discuss at a site to be determined next month on Tuesday, May 20th. (I originally wanted to make it a full month, but that puts us into Memorial Day Weekend, and I figure all of us will likely have other things going on.)
Hope the book doesn’t suck. And if it does suck, at least we’ll have something to talk about. Enjoy!
