Well, Oprah Has One, So Why Can't I?

A Book Club, that is!

My blog has opened so many doors (and windows) for me, in a remarkably short period of time.

One of the delights of this experience has been to communicate with the gifted Johanna Siegmann, an accomplished dancer and author. I'm sure many of you already know who Johanna is.

I've been reading her book, The Tao of Tango. I love it, plain and simple. This is the kind of book you want to read, and then read again. It's also the kind of book that makes you want to have someone else to share it with, to discuss the concepts and inspire conversation.

So, will you be in my book club? Johanna has said that she will be adding her voice to the conversation, so what could be more perfect than that?! I think we should christen our virtual literary salon "The Tao of Tango Book Club."

If you are interested, send me an email or write back in the comments section. The Tao of Tango is available through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble.com, and Borders.com. Let's give you all till November 1 to order your book, and we'll start our first discussion shortly thereafter.

Looking forward to reading and sharing with you!

I've started on another book that I'm enjoying, so will have to read it at a later time :-( But I morally support your book club. :-)
I will provide belated commentary when I read the Tao of Tango. I've been very curious about it!

Welcome Ms. Wellspring! Of course you can be in our bookclub. Another local tanguera, hooray!

You should email me offline...I just took a look at your site, it's lovely. I work for an interior design firm here downtown...very very small world, is it not.

We all look forward to your contributions and your thoughts as you enter our much beloved world of Tango! Bienvenue!

Elizabeth October 16, 2007 at 5:32 PM  

I am giving the book a second reading. I read it when I was a wee baby tanguera, just taking baby steps...It means more to me now, and I am very interested in the discussion, so count me in.

tangobaby October 17, 2007 at 5:04 AM  

That's great, Elizabeth! We'll be glad to hear from you soon.
