Whether they've won multiple literary awards or have written several bestsellers, all of our favorite writers have a debut. Was their future success a fait accompli, or did they have a long road ahead? Join us the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. and we'll discuss their first novels.
Books will be discounted at Left Bank Books both online and in the store the month before and the month of the reading group at 20% off. If you have any questions or are interested in joining, please email Shane.
