Our book club has taken an odd turn–
This fall we will read Kandide and the Secret of the Mists, a book meant for 9-12 year old readers (let’s just say we are all a wee bit older than that). It’s all faeries and magical worlds and enchanting adventure, not my usual interests! But one of our members is a friend of Diane Zimmerman, the author, and she will be attending our meeting in person. That’s a rare opportunity and one we did not want to pass up. Ms. Zimmerman is also a professional magician at the Magic Castle in LA- pretty cool! Several of us (myself included) have children that fall into the 9-12 age range, so we’re going to ask them to read the book along with us and include them in our meeting.
The trailer is quite good! Check it out:

Has your book club ever read something completely different like this? If so, how did it go?
