Hello September

It’s more than a little sad, but it looks like it’s time to shift our monthly images away from beautiful beaches and rays of sunshine as we move into September. While our images are changing, we’re continuing the theme of things being more than a little crazy behind the scenes of The Socratic Salon, so we’ve had to alter our schedules a bit. We try our best not to move things too much once we’ve set dates, but posting twice a week along with our own blogs and busy lives got a little hectic at the end of last month.

For the time being, we’re switching to just one post a week to ease things up a little and hope you’ll hang on with us! And because we love our readers and try to listen to what you have to say we’re going with two backlist books this month. You can get them at the library so there is still plenty of time before we discuss. Last Night in Montreal is Emily St. John’s twisty debut (she wrote Station Eleven) and Golden Boy is the debut novel from Abigail Tarttelin that explores the meaning of gender.

September 7th: Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel with Katie from Bookish Tendencies

September 21st: Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin

We’ll still be posting bookish discussions every other week, with some upcoming debates that just might get a little heated—phew! And even though we have our eye on some great titles for next month (like Margaret Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last!), we always love hearing your suggestions.
