Arctic Summer by Damon Galgut

Monday • September 29 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Ever wish E. M. Forster could have written one more novel? Your wish has been granted. And novels don't get much better than our September selection: superbly written, fascinating topic, a barrel of factual information in fictional format, and even a gorgeous cover – I'm talking about Damon Galgut's new novel about the life of E. M. Forster, ARCTIC SUMMER, which reads as though the master had written it himself. Since the publisher picked up my Shelf-Awareness review for promotion, well, I've decided to use it, too! The book goes on sale September 2. Its a trade paperback for $17, at University Book Store its $13.60, and its the perfect way to end the summer – it will make you want to read all the novels of E. M. Forster over again!

Join our own resident writer, Nick DiMartino, for a lively discussion of this month's selection. Book club members save 20% when you purchase this title at our University District Store.
