Sundance Book Club

The Sundance Book Club meets once a month, every third Wednesday, from 6-7 at Sundance Books and Music in the second-floor fiction room.

Our bookclub is currently full, but if you would like to be added to the waiting list please send an email to bookclub@sundancebookstore.com, and we'll be in touch when there is an opening!

Judith Rodby, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of English from CSU, Chico, leads our club through lively discussions and helps to create a fun, relaxing and thought-provoking setting. A voracious reader who enjoys connecting with fellow book lovers, Judith led The National Reading Initiative for the National Writing Project and has facilitated book clubs for children, adolescents, and adults.

Please feel free to bring snacks and beverages to share, including wine and beer. Sundance will provide cups, plates, napkins, etc.

Our book club is currently reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.

About the book:

One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.
 
A breath-taking feat of literary virtuosity, Lost Children Archive is timely, compassionate, subtly hilarious, and formally inventive—a powerful, urgent story about what it is to be human in an inhuman world.
