Newcomb Regional Book Clubs: Spring 2017

Screen Shot 2017-01-13 at 9


The spring 2017 book is The Ten Year Nap by Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence Meg Wolitzer.

"Meg Wolitzer presents a taxonomy of the subspecies known as the urban female. Lavishly educated and ruefully self-aware, the women in The Ten-Year Nap are never quite at the top of their game, time and success having passed them by — because of their gender, weak ambition, middling talent or some combination thereof. Amy and her friends aren't total losers, they're just not big technicolor winners. Caught between the second and third waves of feminism, they've created lives — as daughters do — in opposition to those of their mothers." -The New York Times

Spring 2011 marked the first gatherings of the Newcomb Book Club. These evenings of friendship and conversation, open to all Newcomb and Tulane alumnae and alumni, proved to be so successful that the NAA continues to expand the number of cities hosting book clubs, offering fall and spring gatherings in selected cities.
