We are so happy to let you know that we will be reading Ann Patchett's latest book, Commonwealth for our September CapRadio Reads meeting on September 12. Patchett, a prolific writer, is also a bookstore owner in her home town of Nashville, Tennessee. She says owning a bookstore has changed her as a reader. Patchett used to be a reader of the classics, and now, as an owner and buyer, she reads mostly books that will be out in four or five months. She says it has changed her as a writer, as well. She sees what others are writing, and knows she doesn't have to write about those subjects. This book, Commonwealth, could not have been written by anyone else. It is, very much, the story of her life, and a very interesting life it has been.
Please join us to discuss this book on Tuesday, September 12 at one of our two Face to Face meetings.
