    Default Book Club

    Anyone interested in starting a book club and list information on current book findings. List your favorites and new editions that youve found. In the club you could give opinions on the books that have been read. Also give information on your favorite authors and their work. Let me know Im going to list a few new books here that have just came out. Peace

    I have alot of authors that I like and I think I will make a list and put them here so everyone will be able to check them out. An alphabetical list of authors. My favorites authors Hmmm. I like Sue Grafton she is a mystery writer. I like poetry writers Sonia Sanchez, Maya Angelo, Nikki Giovanni.
    My favorite all time writer, now this is a classic is James Baldwin. Now James Baldwin wrote Native Son. There is a new book out called "Native Sons." This Book is written by veteran writer and editor Sol Stein. It is a book about the friendship of Stein and Baldwin. Which includes correspondence between these two men. It also includes two versions of a drama they wrote together based on one of Baldwin's essays. It sounds interesting and i will try and get more information on it. I havent read it, so I dont have all the details to review it. But I love Native Son, by James Baldwin if you havent read it you might pick it up. Its a good book.

    I was thinking about Classics and a classic came to mind. So I looked it up.

    The Three Musketeers, by Alexander Dumas. His biography is interesting and tells his life and how he went broke building Monte Cristo. For people who like to go back in history this is a good book.

    I read a book last year called; Black On Red, by Robert Robinson, My 44 years Inside the Soviet Union. This book chronicles the life of Robert Robinson who is black and his years in the Soviet Union. It was difficult book for me to read because of the lack of companionship for him in this country. It gives some history of how began to live there and how he struggle to get out of the Soviet Union. It's a good book.

    The Negro of Peter the Great (1827) This is about Alexander Pushkin living back on those times. Alexander Pushkin was a poet and a black. The link will give you more detail into his life and how he came about.

    I was thinking the same thing to look it up. Get the name of the author. I was thinking that we should pick a book to read. Thats what most book clubs do any everybody reads it. And around the 2nd or 3rd chapter we right how we think the books going. Until we get to the end. Ok I think a paperback and not to long of a book. And give us sometime to read it. Because we all have other things to do. let me know what you think.
