Louise Penny's new book, THE LONG WAY HOME, won't be out until August 26, but our friends at Minotaur Books have something to help with your Three Pines-withdrawal: the great Gamache re-read!
Starting today, a community of readers is engaging in a group re-read of the nine books in Penny’s beloved, bestselling Chief Inspector Gamache series! From now through May 4, the group is reading STILL LIFE (Book 1) and going on GamacheSeries.com to discuss the book. Then every two weeks the discussion moves to the next book with a guest post from a bookseller, librarian, blogger, fellow author, or major fan of Louise. (The first guest moderator is Lesa Holstine!)
