We'll be reading Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe this month. Love, friendship, and murder - this novel's got everything! Seriously, the original review in the Washington Post it "funny and macabre" and if that alone doesn't make you want to read it I don't know what will. *Also, please put that exact quote on my headstone, thanks.
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe has long been on my personal TBR and the fact that Fannie Flagg has finally written a sequel bringing readers of this modern classic back to Whistle Stop, Alabama - I knew now was the time for me to fill this gap in my reading life. And I can already feel myself looking forward to The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop.
I hope you can join us next month! We'll be meeting on October 29th at 6pm via Zoom. Drop me a line at email@example.com if you'd like to be added to our book club mailing list to get Zoom invites.
