The November book club meeting was, as usual, filled with high energyand laughter. Very strong opinions and a thorough dislike for the book selected, Karan Mahajan's "Family Planning". All of us, with no exceptions, felt the book was silly and absurd, with no interesting characters or situations. The only redeeming features were a few lines of humorous narrative sprinkled here and there, and the relative brevity of the novel.
Our next book club meeting is on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM. Because of the Thanksgiving holidays, we will be meeting one week earlier than usual. The book selected for the November meeting is Karan Mahajan's "Family Planning: A Novel".
Mr. Mahajan has been making the literary news lately because his latest book was long-listed for the Booker Prize and in one of the finalists for the National Book Award. The book selected for our book club is an earlier work, and has been commended for its humor.
ISLAND OF THOUSAND MIRRORS
September 28th, 2016
The ICC Book Club will meet next on September 28, 2016 at 7 pm. The book selected for discussion is : Island of a Thousand Mirrors by Nayomi Munaweera. We are expecting the author to attend the book club meeting in person or via Facetime
The questions will be submitted to Ms Munaweera two weeks before the meeting, so that the discussion can be centered on the book and on her comments. It would be helpful if you could send us any questions that you think are relevant and interesting. The draft of the questions/discussion points will be sent to you in advance before sending it to the author.
Looking forward to another good debate in September!

"Such A Long Journey" by Rohinton Mistry
Are you a bookworm? Do you want to be part of a group that has like-minded people who love to read and discuss your kind of books. Do you want to launch into enthralling plotline debates, argue about your favorite authors and use the book club forum to tell other readers which parts made you laugh and cry, which parts made you angry, and why the book is a must-read?
Come join ICC’s book club – we will meet once every 2 months, talk about a variety of books, both fiction and non-fiction, and maybe flavor the evening with spicy snacks and pungent arguments.
The book club will be having their reading on January 22nd. The book selected is "Such A Long Journey" by Rohinton Mistry
