Lisa and Francesca’s 15th Annual Big Book Club Party

15th Annual Book Club Party Rescheduled

May 1 & 2, 2021

Due to these unprecedented times and in full consideration of your well-being, we are going to reschedule the October Big Book Club Party until May, with the hope that we will be able to gather again safely. The new dates are now Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2, 2021.

If you have already sent in your picture holding your copy of Ghosts of Harvard, you don’t have to do anything more, just mark your calendars and look for an email in the new year for your invite. Also, we will be extending the deadline to submit for an invite to the big event until December 31, 2020. If others in your book club would like to be included, they just have to send a picture holding up their copy Ghosts of Harvard to!

Lisa loves book clubs and is grateful to those who choose her books. As a way to honor and thank book clubs who read her, Lisa has created a special Book Club Party.
