Leader: Trista Wilson
This book club reads general literary fiction & non-fiction. It's the "original" Watermark book club, thus, the eponymous name. They read books that have recently been released in paperback. Watermark bookseller Trista Wilson leads the group. A former teacher from upstate New York, Trista loves fiction and memoirs and has a special place in her heart for middle grade books.
A Short Introduction to the Watermark Book Club:
1. What book has been your group's favorite selection this past year? Why? A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles “We loved the characters, setting, and beautiful writing. This is a book to be savored slowly.”
2. How would you describe your book club to a prospective member? We're a book group that reads all genres, mostly in paperback. We try to read a varied selection, so we are not limited to just fiction. Our participants are diverse and very well-read--which leads to good discussions and questions. The best part? We enjoy each other's company and laugh a lot!
