LWSB Book Club

The LWSB Book Club met on July 15, and each of the 14 members present gave a brief synopsis of the book they read. The discussions of the various books brought out storytelling skills and included a conversation on the music of Wagner. Kyung Park also recited an original poem.

Among the selections were “In a Sunburned Country” by Bill Brysan; “Look Again” by Lisa Scottoline; “The Book of Peach” by Penelope Stokes; “The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life” by Steve Leveen; “The Night Watchman” by Louise Erdrich; “The Wright Brothers” by David McCullough; and “Pachinko” by Min Jin Lee. A full list of the chosen books was sent to all members for future reading.

The group meets on the third Thursday of each month in Clubhouse 3, Room 7, from 1-3 p.m.; the next meeting will be on Aug. 19.

The reading schedule for the next three months is as follows: Aug. 19: “The Little Guide to Your Well-Read Life: Get More Books in Your Life and More Life from Your Books” by Steve Leveen, nonfiction, 123 pages.

Sept. 16: “The Master Butchers Singing Club” by Louise Erdrich, fiction, 400 pages.

Oct. 21: “Einstein and the Rabbi: Searching for the Soul” by Naomi Levy, nonfiction, 352 pages.

Anyone with questions, complaints, criticisms or suggestions concerning the club should contact Thomas Gan at or (562) 248-8711.
