Watermark Book Club

Meeting schedule:  Fourth Monday of each month  

Time:  6:30 p.m.

Place:  Author Autograph Gallery (basement)

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?  Commonwealth by Ann Patchett.  Commonwealth, the story of a blended and somewhat dysfunctional family, engendered great discussion by all participants. Told with both humor and heartbreak, this book explores all kinds of love and loyalties.

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!
