The Vox Book Club is linking to Bookshop.org to support local and independent booksellers.
Here’s how the Vox Book Club works: Every month, we pick a book. Around the middle of the month, we publish a discussion post containing thoughts and questions from Vox book critic Constance Grady, but we also have comments turned on and moderated so you can share your thoughts, too. Talk among yourselves! Post your opinions and questions! Or use the conversation as a jumping-off point for your own conversations with friends and family. And at the end of the month, we gather on Zoom for a virtual live discussion.
Our pick for May 2021 is Sanjena Sathian’s assured and immersive debut novel Gold Diggers. It’s got alchemy, heists, and diaspora politics, and it should give us plenty to talk about! Constance will host a live discussion of Gold Diggers on Wednesday, May 19, at 5 pm ET, featuring Sathian herself. We’d love to see you there! You can RSVP here, and in the meantime, sign up for the Vox Book Club newsletter to be notified about new book selections, discussions, and related live events.
Here’s the full Vox Book Club schedule for May 2021:
Friday, May 14: Discussion post on Gold Diggers published to Vox.com
Wednesday, May 19: Virtual live event with author Sanjena Sathian at 5 pm ET. You can RSVP here. Reader questions are encouraged!
