Welcome to Book Group Selections!
This website is a simple blog discussing literary fiction. For several years leading up to the summer of 2014, I was primarily responsible for facilitating the monthly discussions of many of these works by a small book group in Portland, Oregon. (An opportunity to teach full-time lured me to Klamath Falls, Oregon where I require my English students to read literary fiction.) As a useful reference, I have included a page listing all of the books that were either read and discussed as a group, or by myself outside of the group. The intent behind providing the list is to provide some suggestions as to what you might find interesting to read whether you participate in a book group or are simply wondering what to pull off of the bookshelf next.

My professional background: I am a licensed secondary teacher in Oregon with endorsements in Language Arts and Social Studies.

Please contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks!
