Welcome back to another installment of Books in 140 Seconds, in which Erin Balser and I try to make your fortnight by running a book club in just 140 seconds. Not very much time, folks. Not much at all. So really, we’re just starting the conversation, and if you’ve read the book feel free to join in by commenting here.
We kicked off our book club series with a discussion of Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld, and this week we’ve turned our attention to a cool little number known as Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including, Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry by Leanne Shapton. You may remember this book from my review a couple months ago. It’s a book that Erin and I both love (oops, spoiler!), and so we decided to channel our inner Material Girl to discuss this loving curated collection of everyday objects.
KIRBC presents Books in 140 Seconds runs every second Thursday at 1:40 p.m. Tune in on April 22nd as we go graphic with a discussion of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Y: The Last Man.
