june book club reads

featured artists

during the month of June, our book club focuses on specific books by two significant authors- Maya Angelou and Tom Robbins.

what do Maya Angelou and Tom Robbins have in common?  (we all have more in common with each other than we think!)  both have enormous libraries of work. both ooze poetic styles and an assertive mastery of language… well, we can’t quite explain it (maybe you can) but ultimately, both authors, internationally acclaimed- have made significant impressions and had impact on countless lives.

sadly, Maya Angelou passed away on May 28th, 2014.  in featuring her as one of our june book club artists we wish to pay our respects to a true pioneer of peace and beauty.

still writing, one of our favorite authors of all time, Tom Robbins has just released a new memoir, Tibetan Peach Pie.

read to celebrate the lives of all artists- those that have passed and those that continue to feed us with their fiction. choose a poem, a novel or an account from both Angelou and Robbins and aspire to read them both. yes, both!  you can do it!

already read stuff by Tom Robbins and Maya Angelou?  doubt you’ve read them all (especially since Tibetan Peach Pie was released only last week) so choose something you haven’t read! as always, adventureclubinteractive  encourages you to explore beyond the book club shelf and browse other recommendations that are constantly being updated on the adventureclubinteractive goodreads page.

one hundred years of solitude

may book club read

the adventureclubinteractive may book of the month is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. click on the book to peruse more about the the book and the adventureclubinteractive book-club.

the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature was given to the Colombian writer, Gabriel García Márquez.
originally published in 1967, One Hundred Years of Solitude, lent Márquez international success as a writer and journalist. the novel has been translated countlessly into many languages and has sold millions of copies. it’s success remains undiminished, as confirmed by the interest of still new readers. a rare storyteller, known for his use of imagination to weave tales imbued with a “magical realism” Márquez is spoken of as one of those must-read authors. he passed away, quite recently, April 17th, 87 years old, at his home in Mexico City. no time like the present to read these great works- by those that have come and wrote and gone before us.

famished for fiction book club- february

february book club reads

with only 28 days, february is the shortest month of the year,  adventureclubinteractive has decided to honor of february’s diminutive nature by reading short stories.  theStephALA has selected “The Complete Prose of Woody Allen,” while adventureclubviral has selected “The Middleman and Other Stories” by Bharati Mukherjee.

“i was in high school the first time i read through ‘The Complete Prose of Woody Allen’.  at that time i was in the a habit of writing non-sensical poetry and short plays.  the boyfriend of a friend of mine leant me his copy of this book and it spoke to me instantly.  i found it weird, intellectual and hilarious.  now, re-reading it a little more than 10 years later i still enjoy this collection of ideas, essays and short stories and i can appreciate more allusions than i did way back in high school.  this time around i’m also noticing more common themes like numerous references to hat-blocking and kirkegaard.”  -theStephALA
