New Reads Book Club - How to Pronounce Knife

"So many emotions; such a nice breadth of feeling!" The New Reads Book Club gathered to entirely new faces to discuss Souvankham Thammavongsa's How to Pronounce Knife, "strange, quirky, and heartfelt," they praised it's language and characterizations. "I loved how much I got to know the characters, as the short story format doesn't leave as much room for character development."

Readers were thankful for the opportunity to read from new and different perspectives. Unfamiliar with Thammavongsa's previous work, many were excited to explore her poetry, as well as looking forward to her next book!

Thanks to everyone and see you next time as we read Talking Animals by Joni Murphy! Check out the event page here!
