Have you suggested to your book group that you would like to read a classic? Was the response "I read those in high school"? When you read a book at a different period in your life it can be like reading a new book. The St. Louis County Library's book kit collection includes classics. My book groups read a classic every year. Here are just a some of the classics in the kit collection you may want to consider: "The Good Earth" by Pearl Buck, "Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens, "My Antonia" by Willa Cather," and "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" by Betty Smith. Why not give one a try? Remember you need to call to reserve a kit: 314-994-3300.
