MinnPost’s Book Club Club gets a lot of e-mails. We’ll publish a roundup whenever the e-box gets full.
Current reads — and some recommendations — from our clubs
We now have 119 registered clubs, plus 112 open-to-the-public clubs, in the BCC family. Here’s what some are reading, alphabetized by club name.
