That blog post I wrote yesterday? The one about how the days get away from me and I don’t find the time to sit down and write here? It was very honest and I’m glad I got it done. I just wish I had saved it for today because yesterday I was supposed to announce the title of the summer selection for Read With Us.
We are reading Wild Game by Adrienne Brodeur
It’s a memoir about the author’s mother’s affair with her stepfather’s best friend. I read it in early May and it’s full of drama and angst, complicated relationships, vivid descriptions of food, and lovely portrayals of Cape Cod. I enjoyed it greatly, partly because I saw a lot of my mother in Malabar, partly because the setting is so familiar to me, and partly because it’s light and entertaining. I thought that made it a perfect book for us to read together and I’m glad Kym and Bonny agreed. I hope you will, too.
You’ve got June and July to read it, which should give you plenty of time, and we’ll be holding our discussion in August. I think once you start this one you’ll have a hard time putting it down! Hopefully you can find a copy at your public library as many are offering curbside pick up now as well as digital versions through Libby or other resources.
I may be late to the party but since the party hasn’t really started yet I think it’s just fine.
