Here is the program schedule for Jonbenet's Book Club, through August 21 which is as far as I can see into the Future, where we will spend the rest of our lives.

Your assignment is to get ahold of these books - preferably by ordering them from your friendly local independent bookseller, but libraries and used book stores are good too, and all the titles listed here are currently available on Amazon, so, you know, do what you have to do.

Then you've gotta read 'em, and call 201-200-9368 (201-200-WFMU) and discuss them on the air with me and the ever-changing panel of put-upon friends that I badger into coming out to the station with me.
