Happy Holidays from the BAIN Book Group. We have become quite an enthusiastic group – 9 people in attendance at our last meeting to discuss The Stranger by Albert Camus.
The November meeting was our last for 2017.
A list of the books we are scheduled to read for the first two months of 2018 is below. We will be voting on the books for the remaining 10 months at the January meeting and by email, so send your suggestions to Toni Quintana (email@example.com), who is compiling the list.
Our location for the second Tuesday of every month is ICANA, 3 de Febrero 821 between Maure and Gorostiaga, Aula B in Sector Casa. Please join us, whether you have read the book or not.
On January 9, 2018, we will discuss The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson.
In February we will discuss The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.
