RBC Year in Review

We really had a great year with the RBC (Recycle Book Club).  We had a bunch of outstanding authors, and we experimented with a variety of genres.  Here is who came to Recycle Books to address the RBC in 2015 and the genres they wrote in:

January - The Mathematician's Shiva, Stuart Rojstaczer (literary fiction)
February - Spectrum, Alan Jacobson (mystery/thriller/suspense)
March - The Princess of Las Pulgas, C. Lee McKenzie (YA - young adult)
April - Boundaries:  A Love Story, Christine Z. Mason (literary fiction)
May - Dismal Mountain, John Billheimer (mystery/thriller/suspense)
June - The Home for the Friendless, Betty Auchard (memoir)
July - Wyndano's Cloak, A.R. Silverberry (YA fantasy)
August - From Sleepy Lagoon to the Corner of the Cats, Steve Sporleder (Parthenia Hicks came in place of Steve, who was ill and who, very unfortunately, recently passed away)(literary fiction)
September - Herb of Grace, Shelley Adina (religious fiction)
October - Breathless in Love, Bella Andre (who called in) and Jennifer Skully (who was in-house)(romance)
November - Under Wraps, Hannah Jayne (urban fantasy/paranormal)
December - Private Offerings, Ann Bridges (espionage spy thriller)

And looks what's coming up in the 1st 5 months of 2016:

January 20 - The Angels' Share, Rayme Waters (literary fiction, redemption)
February 3 - The Race for Paris, Meg Waite Clayton (historical fiction)
February 17 - The Right Wrong Thing, Ellen Kirschman (police fiction)
March 29 - Murder on the Champ de Mars, Cara Black (mystery/thriller/suspense)
April 28 - The Language of Flowers, Vanessa Diffenbaugh (literary fiction, redemption, top-12 all-time)
May 25 - A Taste of Sugar, Marina Adair (romance)

I think 2016 will be another excellent year of books and personal appearances for the RBC. And a big thank you to Stacy and the rest of the gang at Recycle Books for embracing us and doing everything they can to make our book club evenings special.  We couldn't do it without their support.
