Here’s the summer edition of the BT Book Club. We chatted about two books… the very buzz worthy Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid and the non-fiction title Commander in Cheat:How Golf Explains Trump by Rick Reilly. Thanks as always to Allison Streit from the Calgary Public Library, the BT Book Clubbers Ian Busby, Amber Owen and behind the scenes Tammy Byrka.  Next up for September is The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Read the book with us before the movie comes out! Happy reading!
