Hi, folks:

I’m Danielle Claro, one of the deputy editors here at Real Simple, and I’m so happy to be onboard for this month’s book club. I’ve been meaning to read The Liars’ Club since I heard Mary Karr on NPR eons ago. She was having an amazing, honest conversation about mothers with Alec Baldwin. The fallen Post-it on which I scrawled “MARY KARR!” is probably still somewhere behind my dresser. No matter, it’s an honor to have the opportunity to read this acclaimed memoir with an enthusiastic group of book-lovers. How about we break things down as follows?

Chapters 1 through 4 for Friday April 11.

Chapters 5 through 11 for Friday April 18.

Chapters 12 through 15 for Friday April 25.

See you soon!
