An online South Coast book group?

Yes, that’s right. It’s our new-fangled take on the old-fashioned book group.

We’re forming an online community of book lovers to discuss literature connected with the South Coast. First up — Hammer Head by Nina MacLaughlin, an engaging memoir from a writer who decides to give up her job at the Boston Phoenix to become a carpenter.

If you’ve ever yearned to quit your 9-to-5 job and pursue something entirely new and unexpected, you’ll love this book. Even if you’ve never yearned to quit your day job (is there anyone for whom this applies?), you’ll still love this book.

Join us!  Our books editor, Laura Latour, will lead the discussion on facebook, kicking it off on Tuesday, June 21. You can join in with your comments or just follow others’ comments, enjoying their insights about the book.

And, it gets better! Our wonderful, local bookstores are giving 20% discounts on Hammer Head: Marion Bookstall; Partners Village Store; and, Subtext Book Shop.

It’s as simple as liking our book group page on facebook and following along.

Come give it a whirl!
