famished for fiction book club- june

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.

famished for fiction book club- may


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.
