Hello, Bookies!



Let me introduce myself: My name is Stephanie Sisco, assistant editor in the Home Department here at Real Simple, lover of DIY projects, and constant seeker of the next great read. With a literature major from Florida State University (Go, Noles!), I am thrilled to be leading this month’s reading of Elizabeth Strout’s The Burgess Boys. The novel itself is broken into four books, so we’ll read one part a week, finishing up just before Memorial Day weekend. So...

For Friday, May 3: Book One.

For Friday, May 10: Book Two.

For Friday, May 17: Book Three.

For Thursday, May 23: Book Four.

Happy reading!

—Stephanie
