Each month novelist and creative writing professor Joshua Henkin shares behind-the-scenes stories about his visits with book clubs — in person, over the phone and online with Reading Group Guides, an online resource for reading groups.

Be sure to check back each month to read the rest of the series! I think it’s wonderful that Mr. Henkin makes himself available to book clubs like this. No matter how good the writer, a reader always has questions so having him available is a definite plus!
Mr. Henkin’s latest book is Matrimony which I really enjoyed. You can read more about Mr. Henkin and Matrimony here.
In May, I received a hardback copy of Matrimony by Joshua Henkin from Gayle over at Everyday I Write The Book. She was hosting an online book club and I do believe it was my first experience participating in an online club. It was a positive experience to say the least.
Joshua Henkin was kind enough to answer all of our questions and he recently contacted me with some exciting news. Matrimony has been released in paperback! I loved this book and I LOVE the new cover!
To celebrate this exciting event, Mr. Henkin has offered to giveaway one inscribed copy of Matrimony to one of my readers! If you’d like to read my original post about Matrimony, click here.

You may also click here for the Reading Group Guide and if you’d like to read his essay on book groups that was posted over at Books on the Brain, click here. This would be a wonderful book for your next book club meeting!
