A New Book Club Reading - Ecology of a Cracker Childhood

We are starting a new book club on the Regarding Books facebook page.  Look under "Events" for the latest book reading. We are currently reading Janisse Ray's "Ecology of a Cracker Childhood".

Her unusual upbringing in a junkyard might be a reason her stories often take on an unordered relating, jumping back and forth between memories and local ecology. But then again, that is part of what makes the telling an enjoyable ride. Her descriptions of what can be seen, felt, heard and smelled are wonderful.

Join us in the reading and let us know what you think.
