Last night a group of readers met on twitter for an hour and chatted about Michael Hingston's The Dilettantes. This was the first of our two summer reading choices. It was a lively discussion with many threads and side roads and the hour flew by. It was a great way to spend a snowy evening in September (yes, there was snow!). The conversation swerved from favorite weird sodas, to student newspapers (comparing U of A's The Gateway to SFU's The Peak) and angst... plenty of angst. Michael joined in and it was great to have the author chime in and answer questions. If you want to check out the conversation, use the #yegbookclub on twitter to search. You should be able to pick up most of it.
If you want to check out the book, here's a link to find out more.
Next week we tackle our second summer reading choice, Marty Chan's The Demon Gate. I think you have time to get it read and join in! See you on twitter on Monday, September 15th at 7 p.m.!
