September Book Club: The Glass Castle

September Book Club

September Book Club

Happy September, readers! This month’s club book is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, a New York Times Bestseller recently made into a movie starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. Jeanette Walls is currently a successful author and journalist, but her less-than-idyllic childhood was rootless and nomadic. This is a memoir about family, loyalty, redemption, poverty, and the trials of life. Walls has a frank, honest voice and way of writing that will keep you turning pages, wondering where their family ends up next! You’ll be chuckling and shaking your head at the same time. Don’t forget to follow along on @larsbookclub, our Instagram account. Tag #larsbookclub with your book photos too! Check back in later in the month for discussion questions and as always, lovely printable artwork from our featured illustrator. Enjoy!

August 2017 Book Club

August 2017 Book Club

Adding a bit of fashion to your reading repertoire never hurts, right? In August we’ll be reading about Grace Coddington, the creative director of American Vogue since 1988. Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington is an honest, candid, and often funny look at the fashion world, how it has changed, how Grace started her career, and how she ended up as one of fashion’s greatest icons. The book is filled with her witty observations, lovely Vogue photos, and also Grace’s very own charming illustrations. We hope you enjoy it, whether you’re a fashion guru or not. Coddington has met incredible people and traveled far and wide. It’s a captivating behind-the-scenes look at an artistic, capricious industry! Find the book here and be sure to tune into @larsbookclub as we discuss Grace this month.
