The Fuku Book Club had its 3rd meeting on Sunday, September 8th at Don Jalepenos in Koriyama. For two hours members ate Mexican food and discussed Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde, not to be confused with 50 Shades of Grey, an entirely different book! The book club is open to anyone who wishes to attend and generally hovers around 12-15 members in attendance, with many people who rotate in and out month-to-month.
This past months selection, Shades of Grey, seemed to be the most popular selection yet, receiving unanimous enjoyment among the members. A lively discussion of the novel then took place. Though it was less controversial as a selection, the book had many interesting ideas and themes that the members discussed.
Members take turns choosing five potential book candidates and then putting it to the club for discussion and voting before a novel is finally decided upon. This past month’s novel was selected by Danielle Markewicz.
If you are interested in joining future meetings, feel free to reach out to its hosts, Mark Noizumi or Danielle Markewicz, for further information.
