The Bookstore

Feb 8, 2024

For our first read of the February Bookstore Challenge Prompt (read a memoir written by a writer) Corinne chose Priestdaddy by Patricia Lockwood. It's a memoir about being a poet and having your dad literally be a Catholic priest. And we're of divided opinions for once.

Next time we will read My Garden (Book): by Jamaica Kincaid. This is out of print, but can be found at the library or used. Or if you're patient, a new edition will be available from Picador in July 2024.

In March we will be reading I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem by Maryse Conde and Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya.

Content Warnings: Sexual assault, religious trauma, infertility.

Books mentioned:

David Sedaris (general)
No One is Talking About This by Patricia Lockwood
How to Say Babylon by Safiya Sinclair
