For the September meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library, we will be reading Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado. In these stories, Carmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism.
For the November meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library, we will be reading The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Riveting and suspenseful, Erdrich’s The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.
Get ready for the second meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library. Up next is Jesmyn Ward’s Salvage the Bones, winner of the National Book Award. This gritty but tender novel about family and poverty in the days leading up to Hurricane Katrina.
