Plan Ahead for the 2020 Book Club Party!

October 3 and 4, 2020

Lisa and Francesca love book clubs and they are grateful to those who choose their books to discuss. As a way to honor and thank book clubs who read them, they have created a special event for book clubs, a BIG BOOK CLUB PARTY, at Lisa’s house! This year, due to these unprecedented circumstances, they are changing the submission rules. To get the chance to attend the grand event on either October 3 or October 4, 2020, each person may submit their photo individually, holding a copy of Ghosts of Harvard in either hardcover, ebook, or on audio.
