What Are You Reading?
I'm reading Anne Fadiman's memoir, The Wine Lover's Daughter. She's the author of a couple other books I enjoyed, including Ex Libris. She also the daughter of Clifton Fadiman, a renowned intellectual who was a literary critic, editor, radio host. His greatest passion was wine, though. I met Clifton Fadiman about twenty years ago when I was the branch librarian on Captiva Island. He and his son, Kim, came into the library when he donated a number of books. Some of you might remember the Book-of-the-Month Club. He helped establish it, and served on its board for more than fifty years. I've just started the book. I like her writing, and I remember her father, so I thought it might be interesting.
What are you reading today? I can't wait to find out.
