When choosing a book for a book club there are a lot of factors to consider: Genre, setting, topic, theme, and discussion questions, just to name a few. And we know how challenging it can be to find a book that is both entertaining as well as interesting and provocative enough to spark a good, engaging discussion (while, perhaps, you nosh on cheese and sip wine). Some members of your book club may prefer lighter fare while others want to sink their teeth into the tougher topics. Well, worry not, because we are here to help you: Here, eight solid suggestions that will leave everyone in the group satisfied. For those who love non-fiction, geobiologist and geochemist Hope Jahren delivers an informative and enthralling memoir in Lab Girl. (We promise you won’t look at plants the same way again.) In her harrowing and powerful memoir, The Sound of Gravel, Ruth Wariner chronicles her traumatic childhood in a polygamous cult in Mexico. Lovers of historical fiction will be drawn to The Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly, which follows three women, based on real-life people, throughout World War II. If you can’t put down a good family drama, your book club will devour Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth, a story about two families tested by an affair. Read on for more great suggestions that will keep everyone turning pages—and engaged in conversation. And if you are new to hosting a book club?
