Those of you who get the newsletter will know this, but for newcomers to the game, here it is.
Sound the trumpets and draw back the drapes the latest creation in the Laurie King electronic universe:
The Laurie R. King Virtual Book Club, or, LRK VBC.
Thatâ€™s right, a book club where readers don’t have to bring cookies, hire a babysitter, or even change out of their pajamas.
Every month will see a new King novel (and a few others) under discussion, with extended excerpts, photos, and an essay from Laurie about the book–writing it, the research, unexpected doors it opened, an interview, whatever she feels like saying. There will also be contests and drawings, just to stir things up.
The forum’s ringleader is Vicki VanValkenburgh, who led the YA forum on Readerville for three years. The LRK/VBC opens June 1 with discussion of Laurie’s Edgar-winning first novel, A Grave Talent. The forum can be reached through Laurie’s website or directly at https://laurierking.com/vbulletin/
Drop in and see how much fun a book club can be!
Wishing you a good summer’s read,
Laurie R. King
