Current Book Club News

The Martian movie and book was the previous Book Club selection
Our previous Book Club selection

Our January 2016 book selection is Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (And Everything You Build from Them) by Marcia Riefer Johnston. What’s it about? “Lots of books can strengthen your writing. Few also leave you smiling. This is one.”

With almost 150 5-star reviews on Amazon (and a blurb from someone well-known to NEO STC members!), Word Up! promises to be a great source for discussion.

We’ll meet at 6:00 at the Independence Panera on Wednesday, January 27, 2016. Most of us order something to eat or drink, but you’re not obligated to do so.

We are going to take turns selecting books. If you have a book in mind, let me know so you can make one of the selections.

I’ve created a NEO STC group on We just have to figure out the best way to use it. I think people who can’t make a discussion might want to use it to contribute at a different time. Feel free to let me know if you have any suggestions for using this group.
