find your joy summer reading club & giveaway: part deux.
in case you missed it last month, i started a little summer reading club. i have not been reading nearly enough lately, even though it’s my perfect summer escape. so when go mighty and rivet & sway eyeglasses offered to sponsor a find your joy post based on my goal of reading more i thought i’d give back to you readers a little and sponsor summer reading group. the first book i gave away and we read was gillian flynn’s novel Gone Girl.
we’re going to have an online book group chat to discuss Gone Girl on twitter wednesday evening at 7pm pacific time on july 24th. the hashtag to follow along will be #joytoread. i hope you’ll join us if you read the book! we’re reading three books this summer, and i’ll announce the last book giveaway in august.
the next book i’m going to give away is Mary Coin by marisa silver. Inspired by Migrant Mother, the iconic Depression-era photograph snapped by Dorothea Lange in 1936, the author re-imagines the lives of both the photographer and the subject giving us Mary Coin’s story — her fictional Florence Owens Thompson, the real subject of the photograph Migrant Mother; Vera, her fictional Dorothea Lange; and Walker Dodge, a totally fictional character.
i’m giving away 10 books to 10 sfgirlbybay readers who’d like to join the group and read along together. then, i’ll host another evening of book club, live on twitter in late-august so we can all share our thoughts on the book. anyone will be welcome to read the book and join in on the online book discussion!
