Looking for a book club? Here’s your chance

Two book clubs are launching at Literary Bookpost.

One will meet Tuesday mornings and the other on Thursday evenings, when the store stays open later.

Jennifer Hubbard, author of two award-winning young adult novels, “Paper Covers Rock” and “And We Stay,” will lead the Tuesday morning club.

It starts on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m. Hubbard has chosen “Trespass” by Rose Tremain. The Last Tuesday Bookclub will meet for about one hour.

Hubbard writes on the club’s Facebook page, “‘Trespass,’ by Rose Tremain, is not for the faint of heart. This is a dark story masterfully told, and it is how Tremain tells the story, not the story itself, that interests me most. As you read, pay attention to her choice of structure and to the various ways she threads the motif of trespassing through the novel.”

Wendy Beeker will lead Wendy’s Book Club on the first Thursday of the month, 6-7 p.m. The first meeting will be Oct. 1, when readers will discuss Alice Hoffman’s “Marriage of Opposites.”

The book is about Rachel, the passionate woman who is the mother of the great Impressionist painter Camille Pissaro. Rachel is married off to an older widower who dies. When she meets his young nephew, Frederick, their love affects all around them, including her artistic son.

Anyone can join either or both clubs. All they ask is that you read the book first and be ready to discuss it. Refreshments will be available.

Both clubs have established a Facebook page. Literary Bookpost is at 110 S. Main Street. Call 704-630-9788 for more information.
