Join us April 26th, 7:00 pm EST for our next Algonquin Book Club event! Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help, will interview Sara Gruen about her international bestseller, Water for Elephants. As with all Algonquin Book Club events, you’ll be able to see the entire event via a live webcast–and you’ll also be able to ask questions of the author and chat with others who are also tuning in to the webcast.
Visit the Algonquin Book Club website to:
- Read Sara Gruen’s essay “Inside Circus World” and an excerpt from Water For Elephants
- Download discussion questions from our Reading Group Guide
- Create special dishes paired with the novel, like Sara Gruen’s Oyster Brie Soup, and 1930s-era recipes like Vintage Milk Lemonade and Applesauce Cake
- And join the conversation: Ask questions of Gruen via Facebook or Twitter (using #AlgBookClub) or right here on the blog and she might just answer them live.
Each week leading up to the event we’ll be giving away autographed copies of Water for Elephants, Algonquin Book Club tote bags, and more. To enter, leave a comment here, ask a question on our Facebook Discussion section, or tweet about Water for Elephants using #AlgBookClub as your hasthtag.
Good luck and we look forward to seeing you on the 26th!
