CL's book club: Peachy LoafersFriday March 2, 2018 04:25 pm EST
“We read to know we’re not alone.” So says screenwriter William Nicholson, author of fantasy trilogy Wind on Fire. The feeling of excitement as one opens up a new book, of becoming deeply absorbed into a new fictitious world existing only in the combination of words … Readers know it’s a feeling worth sharing. We want our Creative Loafing readers to come together once a month and help us explore commendable Southern literature.
Creative Loafing thrives on promoting the artists of ATL, and our book club will be no different, settling on the theme of local authors. We’ll mostly read fiction stories relating to Atlanta or written by Georgia natives. Peachy Loafers will meet every second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at A Cappella Books (208 Haralson Ave. N.E.). In honor of Black History Month coming to an end, our first book will be Darktown by Thomas Mullen, a novel depicting the lives of the first black police officers hired by the Atlanta Police Department.
Other upcoming book options include:
Wise Blood by Flannery O'Connor
The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
The Library at Mount Char by Scott Hawkins
Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed
The Guineveres by Sarah Domet

We look forward to seeing you all at our first meeting on Tues., April 10!
