The Cabin Book Club

I’m in a book club. When I tell people that, they react in one of two ways; either they look at me strangely like I’m a throwback to another era and have just entered my jam in the county fair, or they smile, sigh, and say, “I love my book club. I never miss a meeting.” Book clubs, like garden societies and quilting groups, are making a comeback in the U.S. People hunger for human connection, and what better way to feel connected than to meet with like-minded friends, all of whom have just finished reading the same book? A shared experience, good food and wine, laughter, tears, and – oh yeah – discussion about the book of the month.

I asked each of my book club friends to name two books they would take to the cabin this summer: one, a book they re-read and never tire of, and two, a book from their must-read list. Here are some of our suggestions.
