“I appreciate the IFOA Book Club more than you can imagine. And it’s not because I love all the books deftly selected by book club moderator, Jen Tindall. Au contraire! What I loved was the conversation that grew out of the truly diverse selection of books and authors featured in the lineup. The IFOA book club has introduced me to some of the most exciting authors writing today, from Junot Díaz to Lorrie Moore to Paul Harding to Kathleen Winter to to Gary Shytengart to…oh you get the idea. And the added bonus, of course is that members of the book club are able to go and hear the authors speak at IFOA’s events. If you care about books and authors and value lively discussion, you will definitely get a lot out of the IFOA’s book club.”
