I am just about finished with Vilnius Poker, our reading selection for November which was due last Friday. So while we're awaiting my belated post, I thought now would be a good time to announce the 2011 reading schedule for The Wolves, previously known as the Unstructured Book Group. We're a small group of bloggers who met during a read-along of Roberto Bolaño's 2666 back in 2009 and have been hanging out online ever since. As you can probably tell from the list, we're an eclectic bunch with a special fondness for translated/international literature. Do feel free to join us at any time! "Meetings" are held on the last Friday of each month.
January - The Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska (me)
February - Our Horses in Egypt by Rosalind Belben (Emily)
March - Conversation in the Cathedral by Mario Vargas Llosa (Richard)
April - The Dodecahedron, or a Frame for Frames by Paul Glennon (Sarah)
May - What Ever Happened to Modernism? by Gabriel Josipovici (Frances)
June - The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz (Claire)
July - Snow by Orhan Pamuk (me)
August - The End of the Story by Lydia Davis (Frances)
September - Memoirs of Hadrian by Marguerite Yourcenar (Richard)
October - House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski (Sarah)
