BOOK CLUB Giveaway – The Taste of Salt, by Martha Southgate

Book Club Logo

Later this month for BOOK CLUB, we’ll be discussing The Marriage Artist, by Andrew Winer (Tuesday, October 25th here on Linus’s Blanket), but now it’s time give away next month’s BOOK CLUB selection. In November we will be starting our foray into Algonquin Books with, The Taste of Salt, by Martha Southgate.

The Taste of Salt  discussion will take place on Tuesday, November 15 on Jen’s blog – Devourer of Books. BOOK CLUB is earlier than normal this month to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.

From the publisher about The Taste of Salt:

Josie Henderson loves the water and is fulfilled by her position as the only senior-level black scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. In building this impressive life for herself, she has tried to shed the one thing she cannot: her family back in landlocked Cleveland. Her adored brother, Tick, was her childhood ally as they watched their drinking father push away all the love that his wife and children were trying to give him. Now Tick himself has been coming apart and demands to be heard.

Weaving four voices into a beautiful tapestry, Southgate charts the lives of the Hendersons from the parents first charmed meeting to Josie ‘s realization that the ways of the human heart are more complex than anything seen under a microscope.

If you would like to be considered as a participant for November, please fill out this form by 12 PM EST on Thursday, October 13th.

  1. I believe I am already signed up for this one? But, I also signed up for the one for this month and it has not arrived yet…so now I am wondering if I actually DID sign up! LOL!

  2. Oh, I missed the sign up date. I’ve missed all the blogging/book clubbing fun I think I’ll have to go in search of a copy so I can join in too. I’ve missed everyone so much, I’m glad to be back in time for this one. I’ve wanted to read it since I first heard about it.

  3. I believe too that I have heard good things about this book, and will be curious to see what you all consider it. It ought to be a great discussion!
