Hi, Bookies:

Orange Is the New Black won our poll so handily, it was almost, well, criminal. Piper Kerman’s nonfiction account of her turn from graduate of an elite college to inmate at a federal prison, after she’s caught transporting drug money, is the basis of the Netflix series of the same name. Real Simple Staff Health Editor Julia Edelstein will be our November discussion leader; she’ll say hi and give us a few more details about the book a bit later in the week. See you then!
