Chicago Book Club Roundup – November


In addition to the monthly book club listed here, I’m adding a book podcast. The Pages Podcast is a monthly podcast where hosts Bleu Caldwell and Kate Citrin take turns choosing a book to read and discuss. They have very different taste, so expect the conversation to be lively. Also expect diversions, giggling, and lots of talk about cats.
