Here is the list of books:

April 5

Forty Rooms by Olga Grushin
Deals with issues of women’s identity and women’s choices with a unique literary conceit: it proposes that a modern woman will inhabit forty rooms in her lifetime. They form her biography, from childhood to death.

May 3rd

Tuesday Nights in 1980 by Molly Prentiss
Follows a critic, an artist, and a desirous, determined young woman as they find their way—and ultimately collide—amid the ever-evolving New York City art scene of the 1980’s.

May 31st
The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett
In one moment, two lives will be changed forever… and forever… and forever. A tale of possibilities and consequences rings across the shifting decades, from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, and on to the present, showing how even the smallest choices can define the course of our lives.

June 28th

Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler
A debut about a year in the life of a young woman is set in the wild, alluring world of a famous downtown New York restaurant. This is a story about discovery, enchantment, and the power of what remains after disillusionment.


Cost: The cost for the session is $105. Class members receive discounts on class books.

How to Register and Make a Payment:
Payment can be made either by mailing a check, made out to “Open Book,” to me at Open Book Bookstore, 7900 High School Rd., Elkins Park, PA 19027, or you may sign up online here.
