The Brown Baggers met on December 21 to select books for the upcoming months (and eat tasty snacks). Many new and classic titles were suggested by members, but after only one round of voting there were some clear winners. Upcoming titles that the group will read include both fiction and nonfiction books.
Here are the upcoming titles for June 2018 through June 2019:
I was Told to Come Alone by Souad Mekhennet
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald
The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom
Friends Divided by Gordon S. Wood
Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan
Fellow Travelers by Thomas Mallon
