The North Carolina Literary Map is up and running and an easy (if informative) way to lose an entire afternoon.
To help make sure that North Carolina’s finest writers and writing are not only mapped and celebrated, but also, y’know, read, the good folks behind the Lit Map have launched their own online book club.
“The online book club is a place where people can gather together and read North Carolina authors and books and have a forum in which to discuss and share ideas,” quoth the Mappers. The Book Club has its own blog here. Their first selection is Kay Hooper’s Amanda.
They’ve also put out a call to Network members who may be interested in hosting a “meeting” of the club, to discuss one of their own books or a book by one of their favorite fellow Tar Heel authors. If you’re interested, please e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
