The Literazzi Book Club

Last month our Literazzi book club held a fascinating discussion on the John Irving classic A Prayer for Owen Meany.  

Unforgettable characters and master storytelling have made John Irving a literary icon and the tiny but mighty Owen Meany -- a young man with a dramatic vision of his own destiny -- may be Irving's most captivating creation.

At the heart of Owen's coming-of-age story is an enduring friendship with narrator Johnny Wheelwright.   Growing up in Gravesend, New Hampshire during the transformative 1950s and 60s, the boys' lives are filled with tragedies and triumphs in this humor-filled and heartbreaking story.

I loved hearing reader's reactions to this thought-provoking novel and I look forward to discussing the other 2013 selections in the coming months.

The Literazzi welcomes newcomers!  Come join if you're looking for a great book club.
