Another Winner

This month’s River City Books fiction book club selection is generating a lot of buzz. Sue de Malignon, longtime RCB staffer and moderator of the club, told me she enjoyed Montana 1948 so much that she’s reading it a second time in advance of Tuesday night’s gathering of the club.

Even if you haven’t yet read it for the first time, there’s still time to dig into this slim and satisfying novel about a middle-class Montana family torn apart by scandal during the summer of 1948. Members of the club are learning what other literary authorities have long known — author Larry Watson was awarded the Milkweed National Fiction Prize for his efforts.

As always, the book club — the meeting is at 7 p.m., August 5 — is open to the public. New members are welcome. “Montana 1948” retails for $14.00. Pick it up in advance of or during the meeting and save 20 percent.
