LRK Virtual Book Club – July
The gates are open over at the LRK Virtual Book Club for The Beekeeperâ€™s Apprentice, when readers around the world can focus in on such age-old conundra as â€œIs there some meaning to the name Mary Todd?â€ and â€œWhy does Holmes use two colors to mark the bees?â€ and even â€œWould an overdose of turmeric actually turn your eyes yellow?â€
Discerning minds, however, will go straight to the heart of the matter and ask: Whatâ€™s the Laurie R. King Virtual Book Club prize for July? Well, in celebration of Russellâ€™s debut on the VBC, we thought weâ€™d give her away. Not Russell herself, of course, but her first appearance in the world.
The prize for July, drawn at random on July 20th from the membership of the VBC, will be:
A signed 1994 first edition hardback of The Beekeeperâ€™s Apprentice, currently valued at $300 to $400. And signed by me, of course, Ms Russellâ€™s literary agent, since the lady herself is so hard to pin down.
So, are we having fun yet?
