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!)
April 21 - May 4: STILL LIFE
May 5-18: A FATAL GRACE
May 19 - June 1: THE CRUELEST MONTH
June 2-15: A RULE AGAINST MURDER
June 16-29: THE BRUTAL TELLING
June 30 - July 13: BURY YOUR DEAD
July 14-27: A TRICK OF THE LIGHT

The re-read is a fantastic way for fans to revisit the magic of the series while also welcoming new readers into the community. Why not have your patrons (and patrons) join the fun?
Happy (re-)reading! [...]
