Don’t forget to read All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy for the first meeting of the Modern Classics Book Club!

Looking for a good read for your book club?–I highly recommend Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. A fictional account of the true affair between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Cheney, Loving Frank focuses on both the inner and public struggle of Mamah as she tries to live an honest, modern life after abandoning her husband and three children to be with Wright. Even though the protagonists’ egocentricism makes sympathizing with them nearly impossible, Horan’s masterful prose engages the reader in the characters’ emotional, intellectual, and ultimately tragic story.
