Thanks to everyone who participated in our discussion both in the comments section of SeniorPlanet.org and at our first meeting of Zoom about our first book club book: "Tepper Isn't Going Out" by Calvin Trillin.
Now is the time to choose our next reading!
If you think you have a lot more time on your hands today, you are in the perfect position to cozy up with some tea (or something stiffer) and dive into a good book with other Senior Planet readers. Every Tuesday, we publish a thread on SeniorPlanet.org and invite your comments to the next section of the book and then we will hold a discussion on Zoom the last week to read the book together.
But first! We have put together a short list of four engaging books suggested by our members and it is up to you to choose which one to read together next. Read on for more information on each book, then take the vote at the end and tell us: What should the Senior Planet Book Club read next?
We announce the result of the vote in addition to how you can access a copy of the selected book next Tuesday!
