Book Clubs :: SOC Sistas Long List

booksApril is when our book club makes its selections of books for the upcoming year. We started this three years ago, it has worked beautifully and prevents those painful moments at the end of the meeting when someone is trying to think of a great recommendation that they’ve heard of but aren’t sure if they really think it will be good for the group.

If you’re just catching up, here’s where I talk about our process. At the bottom of the post are past years’ long and short lists.
