    The Help by Kathryn Stockett… but, that’s a fairly new release. I’m going to order The Shack and The Book Thief.

    Thank you, Sheri! I haven’t heard of The Help yet — I’ll check it out!

  3. Old School by Tobias Wolff. There are a myriad of topics ripe for discussion, especially if the group can get past the obvious issue of plagiarism. Am still finding things to talk about with this book.

    Good call!! I loved Old School… My book club read it, too, and had so much to talk about. I still think about that work from time to time, in fact. Thanks for adding it to the list!
