The Circle was a controversial, exciting, and interesting pick for November's Book Club book, so we had plenty to talk about. Topics covered include what Eggers gets wrong, what he gets right, and why this book, despite its numerous problems, overall lack of deep exploration of its interesting themes, and lack of sufficiently tolerable characters, is so readable. We hope you'll join us (Adi, Laura, and Katie).

Please join us for the discussion. This month, we're reading Raymond Chandler's classic detective novel, The Big Sleep.
