Book Club Brunch – Chapter 48

Posted By Whitney | 0 comments


Hi there,

Happy first full week of summer! I took a proper stay-cation last week, enjoying the sunshine in Washington, DC and catching up on some much needed quality time with my bookshelves.

I finished Rubyfruit Jungle, which made me absurdly happy. I’m not sure what it is about this book. It’s a pretty universal coming of age story, but there are elements that feel so new and original despite the fact that it was written in the 1970s. I’d say that it should be on high school reading lists, but I never know how far to go when there are language and mature themes in books. Obviously we have no problem with teaching mature themes when their in Steinbeck, but I waffle on that considerably.

I’d definitely love to hear your opinions in the comments!

 

Peace,

Whitney
