Sundance Book Club

The Sundance Book Club meets once a month, every third Wednesday, from 6-7 at Sundance Books and Music in the second-floor fiction room.

Our bookclub is currently full, but if you would like to be added to the waiting list please send an email to bookclub@sundancebookstore.com, and we'll be in touch when there is an opening!

Judith Rodby, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of English from CSU, Chico, leads our club through lively discussions and helps to create a fun, relaxing and thought-provoking setting. A voracious reader who enjoys connecting with fellow book lovers, Judith led The National Reading Initiative for the National Writing Project and has facilitated book clubs for children, adolescents, and adults.

Please feel free to bring snacks and beverages to share, including wine and beer. Sundance will provide cups, plates, napkins, etc.

Our book club is currently reading The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy.

About the book:

Compared favorably to the works of Faulkner and Dickens, Arundhati Roy’s modern classic is equal parts powerful family saga, forbidden love story, and piercing political drama. The seven-year-old twins Estha and Rahel see their world shaken irrevocably by the arrival of their beautiful young cousin, Sophie. It is an event that will lead to an illicit liaison and tragedies accidental and intentional, exposing “big things [that] lurk unsaid” in a country drifting dangerously toward unrest. Lush, lyrical, and unnerving, The God of Small Things is an award-winning landmark that started for its author an esteemed career of fiction and political commentary that continues unabated.
