Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed - Book Club Meeting

Something very cool happened last week. The author of Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed, Marc Blatte, found my blog and commented on my review of his book. I emailed him and he agreed to talk with my Kewaunee library book club at our meeting last week.

We had a fantastic time talking with him. He gave us very interesting insights into his book and also asked us questions about how we felt about certain sections of the book. We all agreed that Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed was one of the best book titles we have heard in a long time. Overall it was very entertaining and a great way to experience the book. It also helped our book club to stay on topic and not delve into politics as we are apt to do.

Marc Blatte was a great sport and we really enjoyed talking to him. I think everyone in the Kewaunee library learned about Humpty Dumpty Was Pushed that day as we all had a great time and let everyone know! It was a great book and we all enjoyed it (except for Janice who is still finishing it - but she liked what she had read so far!) We can't wait for his next novel!

We are going to read Marc's pick for us, The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith, for our next meeting in July.
