In the next few weeks more libraries (and a church) will be hosting discussions on Edward Kelsey Moore's award-winning, best-selling novel, The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. Since the book was published, readers in cities and towns large and small have been gathering with their book groups for lively discussions about the novel (see an earlier book club post). Here are some upcoming discussions that you can attend and swap your experience and opinion of the book with other readers. This is not a complete list of all that's coming up -- there are many local book clubs who don't post about their events on the internet -- but members do write to EKM after a meeting to describe the lively conversations the group had while talking about Odette and the other characters! Are none of these events near you? Investigate setting up a discussion of The Supremes at Earl's at your local place of worship or library branch sometime later this fall or winter. People just like you have suggested Edward Kelsey Moore's novel as a good selection for an existing book group... word-of-mouth is why there are so many discussions of the book taking place each week! Or gather some friends and start up a new group -- there are lots of resources on the internet to get your book club started. Visit your favorite Search Engine and enter: "starting a book club with friends." You'll get lots of positive feedback!
