The first Europa Book Club is here!
In May 2020, Europa Editions launched its first virtual book club. Each month, we will be reading a different Europa title—from new releases, to classics, to hidden gems. Read with us as we explore together the best of international literature!
SIGN UP HERE
You can read at your own pace, or follow our suggested reading schedule. Check-in with us as you read, sending any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or using the hashtag #EuropaBookClub on social media!
At the end of month, join us for a virtual discussion of the book with authors, translators, booksellers, and special guests.
Our selection for November 2020 is All God’s Children by Aaron Gwyn!
A novel about the remarkable people living on the edge of freedom and slavery, All God’s Children brings to life the paradoxes of the American frontier—a place of liberty and bondage, wild equality, and cruel injustice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Mr. Gwyn has couched his meanings within a swift and skillful western, which allows them to unfold with devastating power. [ . . . ] The very people who founded the American West, this bracing novel suggests, were those most desperate to be independent from it.”—Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal
★ “Gwyn creates an overwhelmingly visceral and emotionally rich narrative amid Texas’s complex path to statehood [ . . . ] This is a masterpiece of western fiction in the tradition of Cormac McCarthy and James Carlos Blake.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“Readers will relish these unforgettable characters and this expansive view of Texas’ wild ride to joining the Union.”—Booklist
