The Rumpus Book and Poetry Clubs

Monday, July 26th, 2010

This is a friendly reminder that The Rumpus has an amazing book club of which you can be a part! The club is on its third book, Richard Yates by Tao Lin, which will ship out in just a couple of weeks.

As I think about my own, mildly successful, book club beginnings that happen in my living room where only three people have read through a 90-page book, I am impressed and inspired by the size of The Rumpus’ club, the amazing books they send out, and the online conversations that ensue. You can engage in online chats with readers and authors without even getting out of bed.

The most recent news is that there is a Rumpus Poetry Book Club, as well. It functions just like the book club–one new book each month that ships out to members. The first poetry club selection is Ceiling of Sticks by Shane Book.
