I am very happy to introduce to you the selection for our September book club:
The Last Neanderthal, by Claire Cameron.
The reading and discussion will kickoff on September 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.
Here is the reading schedule for the novel:
01 - 09 September: Through end of Chapter 7
10 - 16 September: Chapter 8, through end of Chapter 15
17 - 23 September: Chapter 16 through end of Chapter 22
24 - 30 September: Chapter 23 through to end
As Labor Day is September 4th, our first “week” on the schedule makes allowances for the holiday.
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 Last Neanderthal.
If you have any questions at all, please ask!!
