Sunday Salon: The 2020 Great Group Reads List

Some people look to October for Halloween and spooky stuff. Me? I'm a coward so what I look forward to this month is the release of the Women's National Book Association Great Group Reads list. The list is always phenomenal and this year is no different. The included books are perfect for book clubs. They contain issues that we're already talking about right now and will be for a long time to come. They're well written and engaging, fiction and memoir. I've read them all and I recommend them for sure. (Full disclosure, I'm the Great Group Reads Chair so this is very much my baby although my committee chooses the books so it's not just a personal passion project.) All books can be bought through your local independent bookstore or online through Bookshop as well as from all other in person and online sources. Read one or two (or all) of these and let me know what you think.


  1. What a great thing to be a part of. I’ve never heard of it (probably because I’m not in the US) I’ll have to check out some of these suggestions though.

  2. Thanks for your service! Since my book club is heavily reliant on the library I'm going back two years to see if I want to recommend any of those. Although during the pandemic we've been running with cosy mysteries and the like...


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
