June 2005 Selection

This month's selection is: "The Queen of the Big Time" by Adriana Trigiani.

This is an incredible and heartwarming story!

The book's heroine, Nella Castelluca, has dreams of a grand life away from her rural Pennsylvania home. But when her father gets injured, she has to take his place on their family farm. All seems to be settling down until she meets the love of her life. After being devastated when he leaves, she wonders if she'll ever find love again. Just when she finds a good, steady man, her first love returns which turns her entire world over. This a story about love and loss and the struggle between being true to your roots vs. going for your own dreams that you'll never forget.

The book is out in paperback now! So rush to Joseph-Beth or your nearest bookseller now. Please join us and meet Ms. Trigiani to talk about "The Queen of the Big Time" at 6:30 P.M. on June 27th at Joseph-Beth for an inspiring evening!

Welcome to the best book blog ever!

My name is Alison Woo and I've been a passionate reader of books since I was two-years-old!

This summer, I'm launching a book club with the The Charlotte Weekly and Joseph-Beth Booksellers. I invite you to join us on this great adventure. We're going to be meeting monthly at the new and phenomenal Joseph-Beth bookstore at SouthPark Mall in south Charlotte. Each month, a new selection will be posted here on the site and we'll be lucky enough to spend some quality time with the author to talk about their book. We'd all love to have you come join us in person, but if you can't, you can come right here to this spot and tell what you thought about the book.

This space is just for the readers. It's here to help you share your passion, talk to other book-lovers, let us know what you're reading and share your favorite books.

Let the reading begin!
