The Brown Baggers Book Group skipped their usual discussion in December and instead spent the hour deciding what titles the group will read in the upcoming months (and eating delicious snacks).
Many current and classic titles were suggested by members, but after several rounds of voting we had some clear winners. Upcoming titles that the group will read include both fiction and nonfiction books as well as some award winners.
Here are the upcoming titles for June 2017 through May 2018:
A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierley
Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
1984 by George Orwell
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore
Istanbul: Memories and the City by Orhan Pamuk
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer
