I am very happy to share with you the selection for our October Book Club:
The History of Bees, by Maja Lunde
The reading and discussion will kick off on October 1st – we hope you will join us for a month of great conversation!
Each week, I will post new questions to help along with our discussions. But please know my questions or prompts are not to act in any restrictive way – everyone is free to comment or ask questions at any time. In fact, the more people who actively participate, the better the book club will be for all participants.
This may seem a bit tricky, the breakdown – the chapters rotate between 3 characters: Tao, William, and George. Every chapter has one of these names as its title.
I have broken down the reading by page numbers, based on edition ISBN: 9781501175732
01 - 07 October: chapters ‘Tao’, through ‘Tao’ - pages 1 through 85
08 - 14 October: chapters ‘George’, through ‘William’ - pages 86 through 168
15 - 21 October: chapters ‘Tao’, through ‘William’ - pages 169 through 252
22 - 28 October: chapters ‘George’, through ‘Tao’ - pages 253 through 337 (end)
I would like to request that we all be respectful of spoiler information. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the novel that is beyond the schedule, please use the “hide details” function. If you click on the wheel icon in the formatting bar, you should see this option. It will cause any selected portion of a comment to look like this:
nothing to see here, just testing.
One tip: in order for the ‘hide details’ to work properly, the text you wish to protect should be on its own line and not within other text.
We hope you will be keen to join in with us as we read The History of Bees
If you have any questions at all, please ask!!
