Hi, Bookies:

Silverware is a more typical fifth-anniversary gift (or something wooden, if you’re a traditionalist), but we’ll be celebrating ours with a book: Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings.  And what’s more, Real Simple Managing Editor Kristin van Ogtrop is coming back as our discussion leader for the first time since she actually introduced the club back in September 2008 with our debut discussion, of Nora Ephron’s I Feel Bad About My Neck. Kristin will detail our reading schedule later this week—just in time for the long Labor Day weekend. See you then!
