Newsday Book Club

Each month during the summer, Newsday selected a book and hosted a live online chat with its author a few weeks later. Selections included: "Someone," by Long Island native Alice McDermott, "We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves," by Karen Joy Fowler, and "Beautiful Ruins," by Jess Walter.
