New Book Club Intended to “Build Community”

GalleyCat, the self-styled “First Word On the Book Publishing Industry,” have announced that their new book club will launch in New York Tuesday night. In a posting earlier today, GalleyCat’s Jason Boog explains:
You can read all the publishing blogs in the world, but nothing beats a conversation with a published author -- real-world interaction and publishing experience will always trump the glowing computer monitor.

In an ongoing effort to build community among readers, writers, and publishing types in real life, we are hosting the inaugural Book Club tomorrow night. The night will feature two nonfiction books and two novels, handpicked to include a wide range of subjects, genres, and publishing experience -- giving book club participants a night of practical and entertaining conversation.
GalleyCat’s book club will launch at the Copper Door Tavern in NYC at 6:30 PM. Under discussion will be Getting In by Karen Stabiner; Museum Legs: Fatigue and Hope in the Face of Art by Amy Whitaker; An Irreverent Curiosity by David Farley and Cemetery Road by Gar Haywood.

If this sounds like the kind of fun you don’t want to miss, the full piece is here.
